Some forms of therapy, such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Work better in group settings because it offers patients perspective on their thinking and behavioral patterns.
Group therapy is an opportunity for small groups (5-15 patients)
To reflect on the experiences of others and share their own experiences with their mental health condition. Additionally, the act of gathering with others offers connection while decreasing any sense of stigma.
Group Therapy is led by a licensed clinician
And is covered by health insurance. Patients must first be assessed by a psychiatrist to determine if group therapy is right for them.
