Group Therapy

What is it?

Well first of all it's not like you see on TV. CBT based group therapy is about learning and adapting, you do not have to talk if you do not feel comfortable in doing so.

CBT (cognitive-behavioural therapy) group therapy for anxiety is a type of therapy that involves a small group of people meeting regularly with a trained therapist to learn skills and techniques for managing symptoms of anxiety and depression.

 

 The therapy is based on the principles of cognitive-behavioural therapy, which focuses on changing negative thoughts, beliefs, and behaviours that contribute to anxiety.

In CBT group therapy, the therapist works with the group to identify the specific types of anxiety that each person is experiencing, such as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, or panic disorder. The therapist then teaches the group members strategies and techniques for managing their symptoms, such as relaxation techniques, cognitive restructuring, and exposure therapy.

CBT group therapy for anxiety typically involves weekly sessions that last between 60-90 minutes. The sessions may be structured around specific topics, such as identifying and challenging negative thought patterns, developing coping strategies for panic attacks, or improving social skills. The therapist may also assign homework assignments to practice the skills learned in therapy and reinforce learning.

The benefits of CBT group therapy include:

  • Learning from others: Group therapy provides an opportunity to learn from others who are experiencing similar challenges and to gain insight and support from others who are working through similar issues.

  • Cost-effective: Group therapy is typically less expensive than individual therapy and may be covered by insurance.

  • Social support: Group therapy provides a supportive environment where group members can connect with others and feel less isolated.

  • Accountability: Being part of a group can provide accountability and motivation to practice the skills learned in therapy.

CBT group therapy for anxiety is a highly effective treatment for anxiety and depression and can be a valuable resource for those struggling with anxiety symptoms.
