Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that takes place with a small group of individuals facing similar issues. The group meets with a trained therapist who guides the conversation and helps facilitate open communication between members. During sessions, members are encouraged to share their experiences and feelings in order to gain insight and understanding into their own behavior. The therapist also provides feedback and guidance on how best to address problems or challenges that come up during the session.
Once enrolled in a group therapy program at GBBH, you can expect sessions to occur regularly and last approximately one to two hours each time. Depending on the size of the group and the number of participants attending each session, conversations may vary from week to week, but overall will focus on topics like managing emotions more effectively or building healthier relationships with peers or family members. Additionally, it is important that all members feel comfortable participating in conversations without being judged by other participants or the therapist leading the session; as such, every effort will be made by our team to ensure all participants feel safe throughout their experience at GBBH.
