Groups offer a unique opportunity to gain skills and strategies for regulating difficult or unwanted thoughts and feelings from professionals and discuss shared experiences and coping strategies with fellow participants. For many, groups offer a more affordable way of engaging in therapy and exploring if the therapeutic process to see if it is a good fit for you.
For some, a significant benefit of groups is being able to connect with people who ‘get it’ and creating new, supportive relationships.
