Whether you are being treated for mental health disorders, addiction, or other concerns going on in your life, you will most likely experience group therapy at one point or another. Unlike individual therapy, group therapy allows you to hear others’ experiences, learn social skills, and give you the opportunity to relate to others that have gone through similar experiences. Group therapy may be intimidating at first, but it has numerous benefits for those that participate.
When you are struggling, it is easy to retreat into your own bubble. Group therapy offers you a safe space where you can open up to others and hear about similar experiences to help you heal. You learn to participate in real-time conversations and open up.
You may think you will be learning more about others in group therapy, but the reality is that through others’ experiences, you will be able to see parts of yourself that you may have never recognized. This will help you heal mores significantly over time.
Group therapy offers a safe space and support in the form of other people that have gone through similar experiences that you have. This can help you know you are not alone and get through whatever you are currently struggling with.
When you go through a challenging experience, it is easy not to see the ways in which you may be wrong in the situation. When you present the incident to the group, the members may be able to offer a different perspective so you can see it differently.
When you hear about others’ survival stories in recovery, it gives you hope in your own journey. It can be comforting to know that others were able to heal from dark places, and therefore you will be able to heal too.
