Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy where a licensed professional leads a session with several individuals on a specific topic. At Lighthouse Psychiatry, we have found that group therapy can be especially effective in treating trauma and building coping skills.
Trauma-focused group therapy is a specialized approach that provides clients or trauma survivors with skills and strategies to better understand their emotions and memories and develop healthier coping skills for a more adaptive lifestyle. This includes increased self-awareness, reduced anxiety, and improved ability to cope with triggers.
In some cases, groups may be tailored to participants with a specific need, such as individuals who have experienced abuse (physical, emotional, or sexual). This common thread allows group members to relate to one another and fosters open communication.
Group therapy for trauma has been practiced for many years and offers a safe space for survivors to share coping strategies, feel a sense of belonging, and boost self-esteem.
If you or someone you know has experienced a traumatic event, participating in trauma-focused group therapy can provide understanding and tools for recovery and resilience.
