What is Group psychotherapy?

What is Group psychotherapy?
Group psychotherapy is a form of therapy in which a therapist works with a small group of individuals, typically ranging from 5 to 12 people, who are experiencing similar emotional or psychological difficulties. The group meets regularly for a set period of time, usually once or twice a week, to discuss their problems and share their experiences with one another.
The purpose of group therapy is to provide a safe and supportive environment in which individuals can explore their thoughts and feelings, develop new coping skills, and receive feedback and support from others who are going through similar struggles. Group therapy can be helpful for a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma, relationship difficulties, and more.
There are different types of group therapy, including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and interpersonal approaches, among others. The therapist leading the group may use a variety of techniques to facilitate discussion and help members develop insights and solutions to their problems. Group therapy can be a highly effective form of treatment, offering a unique level of support, encouragement, and perspective that can be difficult to find in individual therapy.
