Group Therapy in Milwaukee
Each of us has been raised in group environments, through our families, schools, organized activities, or work. These are the environments in which we grow and develop as human beings, and group therapy is no different. It provides a place where we come together with others to share problems or concerns, to better understand our own situation, and to learn from and with each other.
Group therapy can be an incredibly supportive and encouraging space to heal because it can help us recognize that we are not alone. A group environment provides an opportunity for us to better relate to others and teaches how to communicate thoughts, feelings, and needs more effectively to peers who are working towards similar goals.
In a group therapy setting, members can describe things that have been most helpful in their own lives. Ideas can be discussed and explored for their merit or feasibility, and potential roadblocks to progress or change can be brainstormed amongst the group.
You will be amazed at how powerful group support, connection, and feedback can be on your own path to self-improvement.
How Does Group Therapy Work?
A group consists of 5-8 members and one therapist. The sessions occur biweekly and last 60-90 minutes long. Sessions are structured and will be focused on a specific topic each week.
The therapist guides the discussion, demonstrates effective communication techniques (such as active listening and giving and receiving constructive feedback) and ensures the safety and respectfulness of the space.
Members are encouraged to give support and feedback to others, as well as share their reactions to what other members’ contributions are bringing up for them.
