Group therapy is an economical means of treating problems that people often struggle to treat individually. Often we combine group and individual therapy as a powerful means of treatment.
Groups provide support. Hearing from others with similar issues helps your child see they are not alone in dealing with the concerns they may have. Many tweens/teens experience a sense of relie anxiety f when joining a group.
Groups provide feedback. “In the group setting your teen gets a wider range of perspectives on their situation, and that can help them deal with their problems better.”
Groups can propel you forward. Hearing how other members successfully overcame their issues can be very encouraging. Children and teens often push themselves harder when they see what others are doing.
Groups promote social skills. Groups not only help to ease a sense of isolation, but also give the opportunity to practice engaging with people. By participating in a group, your child or teen cansee that they can get along with others.
Group therapy costs less than individual counseling. Some people believe that, because group therapy costs less, it’s not as good, but that's not the case at all! Group therapy can be an incredibly powerful tool for learning and change.
Groups teach you about yourself. Every person in the group “holds up a mirror” and each person get to see themselves through the other group member's eyes. It’s a way of uncovering blind spots that may be in the way of overcoming issues.
