Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. Group therapy can be used alone, but it can also be integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that also includes individual therapy and/or medication management.
Group therapy can be general or focused. Focused groups are often based on a commonality between the group members, such as individuals dealing with a specific diagnosis or experience.
Group therapy is often more cost-efficient than individual therapy. Group therapy involves a charge of $50 per session and may be discounted or covered through your health insurance.
