What Is Group Therapy?

Group therapy is just what it sounds like: working with a therapist and other clients to experience transformative healing. Most times, group therapy brings together people struggling with similar issues like substance abuse or mental health. During sessions, a therapist will use various techniques and approaches to help clients share stories, respond mindfully to each other, and heal from past trauma. Typically, these techniques include behavioral therapy, role play, and active listening. Over time, group therapy can help clients improve communication, change addiction stories, and increase empathy.

Unfortunately, many individuals struggling with mental health don’t seek treatment or have access to mental healthcare like group therapy. Group therapy is often more affordable and covered by health plans like Medicaid, private insurance, and the state insurance marketplace.

Benefits of Group Therapy at NuLife Behavioral Health

Peer support can help people feel included, seen, heard, and valued in the larger community. Group therapy can have a profound impact on someone’s recovery. Benefits of group therapy include:

  • Community and support: Building a new community founded on the shared value of sobriety can help people feel less alone and more empowered.
  • A safe place to share: Many people living with mental health challenges and unresolved trauma struggle to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Group therapy provides a safe space to open up.
  • Feedback and insight: By mirroring others, group therapy can create profound change through active listening and reflection.
  • Lasting friendships: Group therapy can bring people together for long-term care and support networks.

Whether someone loves talking to others or is apprehensive about sharing their life story, the skills learned in group therapy can be invaluable. Together people practice healthy coping mechanisms, healthy communication strategies, and positive ways to cope with life’s stressors.
