What is Group Therapy?
Group therapy involves a therapist leading a group of people, typically for an hour or two. Many groups are designed to target a specific problem while others are more general and focus on improving social skills and obtaining support.
Group counseling works because it plays by different rules than everyday social situations. Group therapy can provide benefits that individual therapy may not. The group is a place where members feel safe enough to be open and honest with one another.

Why Group Therapy
Groups can be a support network helping with ideas for improvements and aiding in accountability. Hearing and supporting others can also change your perspective, help you feel less alone, and empower yourself by empowering others. By seeing how other people grow and overcome obstacles, you can build a toolkit of strategies for your own issues.Group counseling works because it plays by different rules than everyday social situations. Specifically, the group needs to be a place where members feel safe enough to be open and honest with one another.
It is essential that members can trust that their participation in the group and whatever they share in the group will remain confidential. While it is perfectly acceptable to discuss your personal experience of the group with other people in your life, it is very important to always protect the confidentiality of other group members when doing so.
This means not only being sure to never mention any names, but also to avoid sharing information that would make it possible for someone else to figure out who the members are (e.g., any identifying information as such ethnicity, age, or specific aspects of a person’s life story).
