GROUP THERAPY AND PSYCHOEDUCATION
Group therapy is a form of counseling that involves one or more clinicians working with a group of clients.
Group focuses on skill building, exploring and processing emotions, acceptance, and validation within a safe environment. Facilitated by clinicians, group offers diversity and different perspectives from members sharing similar experiences, observing and imitating behaviors, and providing mutual support.
Psychoeducation differs from group therapy because it’s emphasis is on skill building, problem solving, and teaching members about skills or the diagnosis that brought them to group. Psychoeducational groups are typically led by a trained facilitator and not always a clinician.
