Group psychotherapy offers a more direct way to work with problematic relationship patterns. While it might at first seem intimidating, the group experience can provide a protective, supportive and socially enriching environment. Taking part in the therapeutic process of other group participants allows access to one´s own emotions and experiences, which can be similar or different. At the same time, through the group interaction, participants receive multiple and diverse responses about the effect they have on others. Thus the group therapy work strengthens feelings of connection and belonging, but also of individuality, which leads to a greater inner stability and an increase of self-confidence.
Within a protected therapeutic context, patients can experience problematic behaviours and explore new ways of dealing with oneself and others.
