Group Therapy Sessions
I. Group Therapy Benefit
In modern society numerous individuals are coping or recovering from circumstances requiring therapy. Many of these people have asked what is group therapy. Group therapy is a type of psychotherapy where a therapist works with more than one person at a time.
This is often used in rehab centers with the group consisting of individuals in all different areas of recovery but with the same experiences. This lets people see they are not alone and provides hope for a successful recovery. The members of the group share their childhoods, information, strength, confidence, personalities, and behaviors.
The benefits of group therapy for addicts are numerous. The participants feel safe and receive excellent support. The interactions with the other members help them understand their behavior and everyone becomes united because they have the same goal.
A sense of acceptance and belonging is established leading to an individual’s ability to share their experiences and help get rid of any stress, pain, or guilt. This helps people become responsible for the choices they make in their lives because they have a place where they feel accepted.
II. How Are Sessions Conducted?
The average size of a rehab group therapy session is four to twelve individuals. The group generally meets for approximately an hour once or twice each week. The group usually sits in a large circle so everyone is easily seen. Common topics are the progress each member has made since the last session and sharing their feelings of the events that occurred since then.
Sessions are conducted differently depending on the therapist, the goals of the members, and how willing the individuals are to actively participate in a discussion. The most important aspect of the group is the security of the members because this is what gives them the confidence to open themselves up and talk about their problems.
