Group therapy is a fun and functional way to learn new skills and practice goals in a realistic setting. It is important to get the one-on-one support you need in order to learn new skills, but mastering and transferring your skills to the real world takes place when you practice what you have learned outside of one-on-one settings. The one-on-one therapy environment, free of distractions, is quite different from real-life classrooms, social outings, and workplaces.
Group therapy offers a supportive and trusting environment that provides opportunities to teach and learn from your peers, build confidence through newfound relationships, practice skills in a realistic setting that mimics a real world environment (social experience with friends, classroom, etc.), and has the added benefit of cost efficiency.
