How Can I Benefit From a Psychotherapy Group?

Nancy Wesson, Ph.D.
Licensed Psychologist

A psychotherapy group is a "learning lab" for intimacy and relationships. The group provides countless opportunities for personal growth and relationship enhancement.

  • In the group, relationship and intimacy issues are discussed such as how to develop and maintain healthy relationships with friends, co-workers, and partners. These issues are brought up as group members discuss their current relationships or attempts to develop relationships within the group, and outside of the group. Related issues such assertiveness, self-esteem, boundaries, compulsivity, codependency, Adult Children of Alcoholics issues, or social anxiety emerge as the discussion leads to deeper issues and feelings and dysfunctional family and/or relationship patterns.
  • The group is used to get feedback and valuable perspective from others on your relationship patterns. In the therapy group you will be encouraged to work on expressing your feelings and getting your needs met more effectively. This means you will be developing new healthier patterns and improving your communication skills.You can also work on patterns and issues related to dysfunctional family patterns for example: fear of getting close, feeling guilty around others, Adult Children of Alcoholic and codependency issues.
  • Group psychotherapy is a risk taking environment where you gain valuable experience with risk-taking in a supportive environment. Honesty with others and yourself, and trusting others make the group function effectively.The group is a caring, nurturing support system and an opportunity to learn about closeness with others.
