The Power of Group Psychotherapy to Foster Growth and Wholeness
Time and again, we’ve seen the benefits that being in group therapy can bring to everyone involved. The supportive environment that you’ll find in group work tends to allow you to feel safe, be more vulnerable and, consequently, more inclined to take on the issues that keep getting in your way. In addition, watching other group members confront emotional challenges can give you the courage you need to address your own issues.
We offer two different types of group psychotherapy sessions:
- Hot set group therapy—In hot seat therapy, we work as a group, but we focus on one member of the group at a time. Participants volunteer to take the hot seat, where they work one-on-one with one of us. Other group members observe and may participate in ways which would help foster the awareness and growth of the “working” member.
- Interactive group therapy—There is no specific structure for this format. We encourage open conversation among participants, and focus our attention on how people interact with each other in the group, as that is almost always an indicator of how they deal with others outside the group. We look specifically at participants’ ability to manage intimacy, conflict and disclosure; and at how they are able to give and receive emotional support
