Group counseling or Individual Sessions using various cognitive-behavioral techniques (CBT)

Group therapy is frequently used in conjunction with other treatments and services as a method for addressing specific issues. The benefits of group therapy include:

  • Providing members with opportunities to ventilate feelings in a safe environment and receive feedback from others experiencing similar problems.
  • Providing children with opportunities to improve their social skills, develop satisfactory interpersonal relationships, increase empathy, establish social support systems, increase self-awareness and self-esteem, and develop problem-solving skills.

Groups can be a helpful and appropriate therapeutic modality for children, adolescents, parents, offenders, and non-offending parents. Certain issues, such as stigmatization and shame, isolation, and poor self-esteem, are especially amenable to group treatment. In group therapy, children and adolescents can learn that their experiences and feelings are shared by others, thereby correcting erroneous beliefs and cognitive distortions that result in feelings of stigma and shame.

Group therapy is contraindicated when an individual is extremely disturbed, is unable to share the attention of the therapist with others, cannot verbally express his or her feelings, or is involved in a crisis situation that requires one-to-one support.
