Group therapy is the treatment of choice for many concerns, especially for individuals whose distress is related to their social, family, or romantic relationships.
Group therapy (also known as an interpersonal process group), is offered to students who may benefit from exploring personal and interpersonal growth and/or interpersonal underpinnings of psychological symptoms in a safe, supportive environment with others who may have similar experiences.
Groups generally meet once a week, have 5-8 members and 1-2 trained group therapists, and a few groups are specifically designed to be time-limited (often for a specific semester).
Potential Benefits of Group Therapy:
- Provides an opportunity to explore personal concerns with others, who may have similar experiences, in a trusting, confidential environment.
- Provides an opportunity to learn more about your interpersonal communication style and its potential impact on your relationships with others.
- Provides an opportunity to practice more effective communication with other people.
- Learn to better recognize and share your emotional experiences in the present moment by practicing being emotionally available to and vulnerable with others.
- Practice giving and receiving interpersonal feedback in order to identify and work on how you both present yourself to and impact other people.
