Group Therapy: This type of therapy allows a group of people who are going through a similar problem to share, discuss, and relate their experiences in a group setting with the help of a therapist. It’s usually most effective in a small group of up to a dozen individuals, and the rules of confidentiality apply. One of the key benefits of group therapy is the knowledge that others are going through a similar experience and that you’re not alone. It’s enormously helpful to have a support system of people who can relate to your experiences and emotions. Plus, you can learn from what others have gone through.
Group therapy can help with things like the following:
- Substance use disorder
- Medical problems
- Relationship problems
