Group therapy involves one or more mental professionals who lead a group of roughly five to 15 patients. Typically, groups meet for an hour or two each week. Some people attend individual therapy in addition to groups, while others participate in groups only.
Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. Mental health specialists suggest that group members are almost always surprised by how rewarding the group experience can be. Groups can act as a support network and a sounding board. Other members of the group often help you develop ideas for improving a difficult situation or life challenge.
