A group therapy session is different from individual therapy in many ways. They are more cost-effective, allow people to share their experience with others, and it’s easier to get feedback from the therapist. It also increases confidence of people who are shy.
COPE staff periodically offers group therapy options besides those offered through IMPROVE. Groups include topics based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, as well as process groups. For information regarding group availability, please contact COPE staff.
There are two types of group therapy sessions – closed and open. Closed groups have a maximum number of members while open groups have an unlimited number of members. The benefits vary based on the type of group therapy one chooses.
