Why Group Therapy Works

Whether it’s the death of a loved one, anxiety, substance abuse, anger management, or another condition, options for therapy vary: Some people – adults and children included – may benefit exclusively from one-on-one counseling with a certified psychotherapist, but for others, an effective form of treatment may also include group therapy.

It might seem intimidating to discuss a personal topic with several people, particularly strangers, however many who do pursue group therapy find that sharing their experiences in a group setting can help them learn from others experiencing the same challenges. Group therapy provides a safe and supportive environment and can provide a network of support to help you know you’re not alone. Participating in group therapy can also give you access to diverse feedback from others to help you look at what you’re facing from a new perspective – offering additional effective methods to help you tackle your challenges.
