Information Regarding Group Therapy

This information sheet is intended for people who are about to begin Group Therapy, or who are considering it as a possible treatment.

Group therapy is different from individual therapy because many of the helpful events take place between the members and not just between the leader and the members. That is one reason why it is important that all of the members have a general introduction before beginning.

The issues raised in this handout are also useful to talk about during the first few sessions in the group. Information Regarding Group Therapy
