Group psychotherapy or group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which one or more therapists treat a small group of clients at the same time. The term can refer to any form of psychotherapy when delivered in a group format, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). The purpose is to explore and examine interpersonal interactions within the group and use those to the group's advantage as a whole (everybody in the group has the potential to benefit).
Several different groups are available at Bluegrass, including support groups, skills training groups (such as anger management, mindfulness, relaxation training, and social skills training), as well as psycho-education groups for specific purposes (such as changing addiction behavior, controlling overeating, understanding how to control emotion in relationships).
Groups are, by design, made up of people with similar attributes or similar problems. A common way to establish a group is by age--Bluegrass has groups for adolescents and for adults, mixed gender groups as well as some groups for female and others for male (depending on the purpose of the group).
