Before deciding if group therapy is right for you,
check out the different types of Groups
This is a group of people who have similar experiences and concerns and who meet in order to provide emotional help, advice, and encouragement for one another.
These groups focus on developing group members’ thinking, feeling, and behavioral skills through a structured learning format within and across group meetings. The group leader provides factual information, leads discussions about it, and helps group members incorporate the information into their lives through skill-building exercises.
These groups focus on interpersonal processes and problem-solving strategies to help people resolve the usual, yet often difficult, problems of living. Like psychoeducational groups, people in these groups are relatively well-functioning but are seeking some kind of personal growth. The primary “work” in the group is accomplished by the group members supporting and challenging each other in self-exploration. The group leader acts as a facilitator more than a teacher, leading the group through a series of developmental stages.
These groups are designed to help group members remediate psychological problems. They deal with both conscious and unconscious problems. Psychotherapy groups are oriented toward the resolution of pervasive, long-term issues and treat more severe psychological disorders. The exchanges among members of psychotherapy groups are viewed as important in bringing about change. Like counseling groups, the group leader acts as a facilitator more than a teacher, but will need to do deeper work than is required in counseling.

The facilitator/Lead therapist will do an assessment to determine if group work is a good fit for each prospective member. In some cases individuals may not be appropriate for group therapy due to unique factors and needs of the prospective members.
