Often in life you struggle with challenges and issues that make you feel like you are the alone and isolated from the rest of society. To help you through these times, Pattison Professional Counseling and Mediation Center offers group therapy to help break those bonds of isolation and loneliness by providing treatment to small gatherings of individuals challenged with similar issues.
How Group Therapy Works
Group therapy involves one or more Pattison counselors who lead a group of five to 10 patients. A group therapy session takes place once or twice weekly and generally lasts from one to two hours. Some patients attend individual therapy in addition to group therapy, while others take part in groups only.
As a member of a group, you are encouraged to share your personal issues. You control how much and when you tell the group about yourself. The more involved you are with the group discussion, the more likely you are to benefit from group therapy.
Group members can be a valuable source of support, but group therapy at Pattison is more than an informal self-help support group. Group therapy sessions are led by counselors with specialized training, who will provide you with proven methods for managing specific problems, helping you to make the most of your group therapy experience.
The Benefits of Group Therapy
