Group Programs

A psychology group is…

A form of therapy or counseling that involves a small group of people who meet regularly to discuss and explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

The group is typically led by a trained facilitator, such as a psychologist, counsellor, or social worker. The group setting allows individuals to share their experiences and insights, receive feedback and support from others, and learn from one another in a structure group environment.

There are different types of psychology groups, depending on the specific focus or goal of the group. Some groups are focused on a particular mental health condition, such as depression or anxiety, while others may be focused on a particular issue, such as addiction or grief. Some groups may be focused on skill-building, such as communication or social skills or problem solving, while others may be focused on self-improvement or personal growth.

The size of the group can vary, but typically range from 3 to 10 people. Groups can be closed or open, meaning that new members can join at any time or only at specific intervals. Group therapy can be beneficial for a variety of individuals, such as those with mental health conditions, those dealing with a particular issue, or those looking for personal growth or self-improvement.

Psychology groups offer a variety of benefits, including:

  • Support: Group members can provide emotional and practical support to one another, which can be particularly helpful for those who feel isolated or alone.
  • Shared experience: Group members can share their experiences and insights, which can be helpful for gaining a new perspective on a problem or issue.

  • Norms: Group members can provide feedback and help establish norms of appropriate behaviour, which can be beneficial for individuals who struggle with social skills.
  • Cost effective: Group therapy is typically less expensive than individual therapy.
  • Behavior change: Group members can observe and learn from one another, which can be helpful for making behavior changes.
  • Self-discovery: Group therapy can help individuals gain insight into their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, which can be beneficial for personal growth and self-discovery.
