What is Group Therapy (Group Psychotherapy)?

Group therapy, a form of psychotherapy, is a treatment modality intended to help individuals improve their ability to manage problems in their lives. In group therapy, meetings include four to eight members and a therapist meeting two to four times per month for a specified amount of time. Group therapy focuses on gaining support and improving interpersonal interactions, and resolving emotional, behavioral, and relational difficulties. The therapist chooses participants often from his or her practice whom may benefit from this type of therapy and those whom may have a useful influence on other members in the group. Group therapy is a proven method for personal growth and development.
