What is group therapy?
Group therapy is a dynamic and interactive approach for emotional healing. For teenagers and pre-teens, it can be especially effective because so much of an adolescent’s emotional development is affected by how, when, or even if they feel connected to others. Instead of meeting with a counselor for individual or family therapy, a pre-teen or teenager is welcomed into one of our groups as an equal. Although these groups are facilitated and guided by one of our therapists, it is really the group as a whole who drives the interaction. During the session, they are encouraged to explore who they are, who they want to become, and safely challenge questions or issues that come up during this tumultuous period of their lives. This all happens with great excitement, bravery, or sometimes with trepidation. In any case, they are stretching their comfort levels with the knowledge that they are supported by their peers.
