At Divinity Recovery, Inc., we offer group therapy as a modality of therapy for clients. We believe group therapy is a vital part of a client’s path to recovery. The social reinforcement associated with group therapy offers support and comfort for those who may not have that in their day-to-day life.
What is Group Therapy?
In group therapy, a certified counselor will lead a small group of people in a therapy session. Group therapy helps those involved solve problems while improving social relationships and learning to operate as members of society. The counselor helps participants recognize unhealthy coping mechanisms and find new, healthier ones that will aid in challenges associated with life. One of the difficulties with group therapy is ensuring each participant has the opportunity to speak about their feelings freely, but don’t worry. Our staff has been trained to handle such challenges and will ensure each person gets their chance to share. The ultimate goal of group therapy is for each person participating to grow and develop new coping skills through observing how other people think and behave.
Why Group Therapy Works
Group therapy is a very effective modality of therapy. We are, indeed, social creatures. Almost everything humans do is in a social setting. Group therapy helps diminish feelings of loneliness and allow participants to watch others successfully grow in their healing and recovery, pushing them to reach that goal themselves. Research shows that the rewards of group therapy- connections, fulfillment, support, and a sense of belonging- help those participating maintain a healthy lifestyle by reinforcing their commitment to themselves. Another benefit of group therapy is the opportunity for the therapist to see firsthand how the clients interact with each other, then being able to provide helpful feedback to each client. Group therapy also provides clients with a safe haven to practice using their new coping mechanisms and techniques learned in therapy with others. All around, the benefits of group therapy are astonishing.
