WHAT IS GROUP THERAPY?
Group therapy involves one or more psychologists who lead a group, typically ranging from five to 15 clients.  Group sessions usually occur one to two hours per week.  The nature of the groups may vary.  Some groups are designed to target a specific area (i.e., post-partum depression, infertility, deployment stress, grief/loss, etc.), while other groups are more general and might focus on helping clients improve social skills or address self-esteem issues.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GROUP THERAPY?
 
Provides Support
Groups help to ease that sense of isolation.  Hearing from others with similar issues helps you to see that you are not alone, which can provide a huge sense of relief.  In addition to receiving support, you also learn how to give support to others.
 
Offers a Wider Range of Perspectives
Group members can help you see things that you might not be aware of.  This can improve your self-awareness as well as your problem solving abilities.
 
Motivating
Hearing how other members successfully overcame their challenge often pushes you to work harder in dealing with your own challenges. 
 
Learn healthier ways to relate to others
Groups provide you with the opportunity to practice communication or the expression of emotions and feelings in a safe environment.  
 
Cost-Effective
Group therapy often costs less than individual therapy.
