The group therapy offered at Healing Minds is an invaluable asset in the mental care of our patients. Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which one or more therapists treat a small group of clients together as a group.
Group therapy at Healing Minds can take many forms. The term can legitimately refer to any form of psychotherapy when delivered in a group format, including art therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy or interpersonal therapy.
Usually though, it applies to psychodynamic group therapy where the group context and group process is explicitly utilized as a mechanism of change by developing, exploring and examining interpersonal relationships within the group.
There's Strength In Numbers
Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. In our experience, group members in Healing Minds group therapy sessions are almost always surprised by how rewarding the group experience can be. The research supports this as well.
Groups can act as a support network, a sounding board, or even both. When you’re stuck, group therapy members can help you come up with specific ideas for improving a difficult situation or life challenge, and hold you accountable along the way.
Perspective is the key and regularly talking and listening to others also helps you put your own problems in perspective. Many people experience mental health difficulties, but few speak openly about them to people they don’t know well. Oftentimes, you may feel like you are the only one struggling — but you’re not. It can be a relief to hear others discuss what they’re going through, and realize you’re not alone.
