Friends Playing on the Beach

Group therapy focuses especially on the interpersonal relationships of individuals, on problems related to interpersonal relationships,  but problems like stress, depression, phobias, eating disorders, often become objects of psycho-therapeutic negotiation and treatment. The aim of group therapy is to help the individuals participating in the group to effectively deal with their emotional difficulties, and to achieve personal development and self-awareness. Individuals who decide to participate in a group will share the personal issues they are facing with the other members of the group. Individuals can also share with the group their feelings and thoughts regarding these issues.  Some members may wish to respond to issues referred to by an individual, may wish to encourage him, support him or offer constructive criticism, or simply share any thoughts and feelings that they may have experienced when listening to that person’s experience.  The issues discussed in the group are not necessarily set out by the coordinator, but emerge spontaneously from the people participating in the group. The individuals participating in the group realise that there are other people who feel similar to the way they do, and, thus experience a relief by seeing that they are not alone and helpless when it comes to dealing with their problems. The group can become a vital source of support and strength during difficult periods, when an individual may be experiencing intense stress and emotional turmoil. The feedback individuals receive from the reactions and the responses of the other members with regard to the issues they “open up”  during the healing process usually help them become aware of certain dysfunctional attitudes and/or various patterns of behaviour that may adversely affect their relationships with others.  Also, the feedback from the group may help an individual to change his perspective on things, or may help him take up a more creative and effective stance regarding his problems.
