Group Therapy is counseling that is usually comprised of 3-8 group members who meet face-to-face with one or two trained counselors and talk about what is concerning them most. Members listen to each other and can openly provide each other with feedback and support. These group meetings or activities give group members an opportunity to increase understanding of self and others, try out new ways of interacting with others, and learn positive ways to react to life's various situations.
For some people, it is easier to talk in an office or large room, while others open up even more by enjoying real life experiences such as spending time in the wilderness or outdoors, or participating in music or art. Recreational group therapy allows for each individual to connect while doing something they love whether that is tennis, basketball, football, etc. When these activities are facilitated by trained counselors, they ensure that your concerns are being addressed in the best way possible, and keep your group progressing forward.
