Why Group Psychotherapy?
From a therapeutic standpoint, group psychotherapy actively addresses psychological and relationship issues such as those struggling with social isolation and social skills or those who need to learn to receive or take in support or learn valuable information through psychoed group therapy. Through the group therapeutic process attachment issues are presented and addressed . For clients, group psychotherapy is a very valuable and cost-efficient modality of psychotherapy. For psychotherapists trained in group therapy, group therapy is a powerful means of increasing and developing a private practice and increasing practice income while leading a psychotherapy group where clients learn 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 group support, encouragement, and relationship feedback from peers, a factor highly valued by group participants. Group therapy also allows individuals an alternate way of working through attachment issues. Group psychotherapy is a peer team approach within a small safe therapeutic community. Group therapy offers many opportunities to try out new behaviors and take on new roles in a safe environment.
