Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which patients meet to describe and discuss their problems. Group work is based on the idea that human beings are fundamentally social beings, whose lives are inextricably linked with other people in many ways, so some people prefer to work in a group as this offers them another context in which to explore and resolve their difficulties.
Under the direction of the group therapist, the group is able to give support, offer alternatives and comfort members, so that their difficulties become resolved and alternative behaviours are learned. A group can also help someone develop new ways of relating to people. Groups are usually 6-10 people with one or more trained group therapists. During the group meeting, members decide what they want to talk about and are encouraged to give feedback to each other.
