Group therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which a therapist works with a small group of individuals, typically ranging from 5 to 10 people, who are all experiencing similar mental health concerns or life stressors. During group therapy sessions, clients have the opportunity to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences with each other and receive support and feedback from both the therapist and other group members.
Group therapy sessions at ICS are led by one or more therapists who have expertise in the specific mental health concerns being addressed. The therapist(s) may use a variety of techniques and approaches to help the group members, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, or mindfulness-based therapy.
Group therapy can be helpful for a range of mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, adjustment, parenting, and other challenges. It can also be useful for people who are looking to develop better interpersonal skills, build social support, and increase self-awareness.
Group therapy sessions are typically held on a regular basis, such as once a week, and can last for a set period of time, such as several weeks or several months. The sessions are usually structured to provide opportunities for each group member to share and receive feedback, with the therapist(s) facilitating the discussion and providing support and guidance as needed.
The benefits of group therapy at ICS can include: feeling less alone, gaining new perspectives and insights from other group members, and learning new coping skills and strategies. Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive space for individuals to practice new social skills, build confidence, and develop a sense of community.
