Group therapy is a powerful form of psychological intervention that uses the power of the group to harness lasting change. Members in group therapy are afforded the opportunity to not only address their own concerns, but work with themes related to attachment, trust, vulnerability, and communication as they interact with one another in the group setting.
Group offers a unique and powerful therapeutic experience. In group psychotherapy, group members work through personal concerns and barriers to recovery in powerful ways unique to this therapeutic environment. Group members offer each other support as well as valuable here-and-now interpersonal feedback to foster personal development, insight, and promote change. Group also provides a unique opportunity to address and work through themes of attachment, trust, vulnerability, and communication in a supportive environment.
Group therapy has a variety of formats. At Balance Health & Healing we offer process groups, which focus on increasing insight and connection; experiential groups which focus on addressing underlying eating disorder concerns using activities and process; a mindfulness group which focuses on building meditation skills, mindfulness, self-compassion, and adaptive coping strategies; and skills groups, which provide psychoeducation and focus on skill building, coping strategies, and lasting behavioral change.
