Group Psychotherapy

Group psychotherapy is a style of therapy where one or more therapists meet with a small and select group of clients who share similar problems or issues to learn and share information and solutions. Although this term can be used to refer to any recognized school of therapy, it is most properly applied to the use of psychoanalytic theory and practice (i.e., psychoanalysis). One of the most important ingredients of this type of therapy is to assemble a complementary group of personalities in order to form mutually beneficial relationships within the group.
