Therapy Process Groups
The beauty of process groups is how unstructured they are. Some groups might focus on a particular theme or incorporate a particular demographic, but mostly they thrive in how organic they are. Group members can raise any issue that they deem important, but the most important part of the therapy is the natural interactions between members.
What To Expect From A Process Group
Your first few sessions with a process group will generally concentrate on establishing trust between the members and the therapist. During those sessions, your therapists and fellow members will work on building a rapport that will allow everyone to communicate freely and with honesty. New process group members are often surprised and amazed at how much their input can help others. The group trust is built and enhanced when every member commits to the group.
As you start freely communicating and interacting with the other members, you will usually also begin recreating some of the problems that caused you to seek process group therapy in the first place. People who seek help in group therapy usually have relationship difficulties and challenges in interacting with others. During group sessions, these difficulties will start to emerge. The other members as well as your counselor will be able to pick up on these patterns and give you feedback on how to change them.
One of the biggest reasons people experience challenges in their personal life is unexpressed emotions and thoughts. Sharing these thoughts and emotions in a safe environment is what sets you on the road to self-awareness. Process group therapy offers a climate of trust where people can feel safe in their expression.
