Group therapy alone, or in conjunction with other therapies, is a very useful and powerful form of treatment. Because group members are at different stages of the treatment process, seeing others who are coping and recovering gives hope to new members. Being in a group of people with similar issues and struggles helps decrease feelings of isolation and normalizes people’s symptoms and reactions. By interacting with other people and receiving feedback from the group and therapist, each individual can gain a greater understanding of themselves. Finally, because group therapy is much like a family, it can provide a corrective emotional experience modeling healthy family functioning.
