Group Therapy 

      Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. Group therapy is sometimes used alone, but it is also commonly integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that also includes individual therapy. The most common types of group therapy include:

- Cognitive behavioral groups, which center on identifying and changing inaccurate or distorted thinking patterns, emotional responses, and behaviors.

- Interpersonal groups, which focus on your interpersonal relationships and social interactions, including how much support you have from others and the impact these relationships have on your mental health.

- Psychoeducational groups, which focus on educating clients about their disorders and ways of coping often based on the principles of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT)

- Skills development groups, which focus on improving social skills in people with mental disorders or developmental disabilities.

- Support groups, which provide a wide range of benefits for people with a variety of mental health conditions as well as their loved ones
