Why Group Psychotherapy?
Group psychotherapy offers many advantages over individual psychotherapy. From a therapeutic standpoint, group psychotherapy better addresses some psychological issues, for example, the treatment of individuals struggling with social skills, social isolation, and interpersonal relationships. For both mental health professionals and clients, group psychotherapy can be a cost-effective way of providing and receiving psychotherapy.
In Group psychotherapy a client learns about his or her interpersonal impact on others and how to increase relatedness and connection with others within and outside of the group.
Group psychotherapy also offers important therapeutic benefits that cannot be provided in one-on-one sessions with the client. Group psychotherapy offers a significantly different therapeutic alliance as an alliance is formed with the group itself and not just the therapist. In addition, group psychotherapy offers interpersonal feedback from peers, a factor highly valued by group participants. The group setting also allows individuals an alternate way of working through attachment issues. Group psychotherapy offers group members opportunities to try out new behaviors and take on new roles in a safe environment.
