A place to sound off
Saying your thoughts and problems aloud gives other group members the chance to offer a fresh perspective on your situation. Your peers may be able to see places for healing or improvement that you are unable to see currently. Opening your experience to the viewpoint of others can be a step towards life-affirming feedback.
The trials and successes of fellow humans are an incredible source of validation and motivation. Others can serve as a reminder that success is possible. Those participating in group therapy may be more inclined to push themselves beyond stagnation when they bond with others doing the same.
Support from multiple people
Group therapy provides the rare opportunity to reach out to others in need and let others reach out to you. A truly cohesive group lead by a talented therapist can support you in ways that few other therapeutic modalities are able.
Groups of people can help you learn things about yourself you may not have known before. However, In the open and honest atmosphere of group therapy, you are in a unique position to also support others, help them see their own blind spots and share your unique experiences with those who may appreciate the normalization and support surrounding their own struggles.
Social skill building
Group therapy sessions are the perfect place to engage with others. People who understand your conflicts can often be more open to socialization and better understand your boundaries, creating more interpersonal safety then in most other social situations.
