therapy is a type of psychotherapy that involves individuals with similar
issues coming together in a safe and healing environment. Group therapy
is sometimes used alone, but it can also be integrated into your treatment plan
that includes individual therapy.
Evidenced based studies stress the importance of interpersonal learning. In a group setting, you participant to learn how to better manage and reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and isolation by using the coping mechanisms learned from both your peers and your therapist. Group therapy can be very effective: it allows you to receive the support and encouragement of the other members of the group; it is also a very cost effective way to get the help you need.
