We are born in a group and we can heal in a group!
Group therapy helps people learn about themselves and improve their interpersonal relationships. They address feelings of isolation, depression or anxiety. They help people make significant changes to feel better about the quality of their lives. Additionally, group therapists can apply the principles of group to other settings and situations such as businesses, schools and community organizations. In studies comparing group psychotherapy to individual therapy, group therapy has been shown to be as effective and sometimes even more effective. In cases of medical illness, there is substantial evidence that this form of therapy helps people cope better with their illness, enhances the quality of their lives and, in some cases, such as breast cancer, has even been shown to help people live longer.
