The Power of Groups

It doesn’t matter whether you are an individual or couple seeking help—in either case, you can see a therapist by yourself, participate in a group, or do both. People generally have an idea of what happens in a session with just you (or you and your partner) and a therapist, but not many people know what happens in a group setting, or why a group setting would be valuable.

There is a good deal of power in group work for the following reasons:

  1. Group work offers a wider perspective of your problem as you share experiences and solutions with others struggling with the similar issues
  2. Group work often utilizes more experiential learning, i.e. activities and prompts, whereas traditional therapy is less structured and more spontaneous
  3. Group work can be a great addendum to individual work, as it brings up issues that you might not have time to explore in-depth in the group setting

In addition to those reasons, group work is a less expensive option, and can sometimes be less intense. Not everybody is open to the idea of group work, though, and that’s okay. The idea is to find the combination that works for you.

Growth Thru Change is currently offering the following groups:

Spirituality Health & Awareness Group
Teen Group
Mental Health Group
Wounded Inner Child Workshop (CLOSED)
