Definitions for "Group Therapy"
Group therapy refers to a wide range of therapy in which individual clients participate in the work of others in group meetings. The power of the group includes, but is not limited to the phenomenon that whenever a group gathers, the unconscious mind of the group emerges more powerfully than in most individual sessions. Thus, the work can be conducted on a deeper level.
This form of therapy involves groups of usually 4 to 12 people who have similar problems and who meet regularly with a therapist. The therapist uses the emotional interactions of the group's members to help them get relief from distress and possibly modify their behavior.
