Group Therapy

Group therapy is a highly effective resource that can both enrich and enhance the progress of individual therapy and/or a comprehensive treatment program. At The Delray Center for Healing, each group is facilitated by a highly trained professional and developed exclusively to meet the growing and changing needs of our clients.

Groups are structured to provide a safe and respectful environment to learn, heal, and build connections with others facing similar struggles. In addition to our regular assortment of outpatient groups, the Delray Center for Healing offers intensive programming, augmented by psychiatry, group and individual therapy, that are highly structured and aimed at developing specific skills or treating specific mental health disorders.

About Group Therapy

Group therapy is a type of therapy that involves groups of peers who may be dealing with or have dealt with similar issues or experiences. In our group therapy settings, sessions are facilitated by a licensed therapist to ensure group discussions are valuable to the participants. Furthermore, we employ various therapeutic methods in our therapy sessions to encourage discussion, growth, and connection. Group sizes range from small to moderate, depending on the type of therapy and the clinical goals of the group.

The Importance of Group Therapy

The goal of therapeutic group settings is to help individuals work through their issues, while practicing healthy coping and communication skills with their peers. It is especially beneficial for individuals who are experiencing issues that also impact those around them, like family and friends. This is because group therapy provides a healthy outlet, while also helping individuals understand the experiences of others. Therapeutic groups also stimulate sharing and discussion which can help with internal reflection.

Other important objectives of therapeutic groups may include:

  • Aiding individuals in identifying self-destructive behaviors
  • Providing a supportive environment of peers with the same experiences
  • Reducing loneliness and increasing a sense of involvement and purpose
  • Offering positive assessments to address emotional complications

Group settings can be a can beneficial alternative or addition to individual therapy. While individual therapy is important in dealing with a number of mental health issues, therapeutic groups can provide much-needed peer support and feedback, and offers a different setting for processing past and present problems. With some therapeutic modalities, such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) it is recommended that clients participate in both individual and group settings, in order the hone newly-learned coping skills.
