What Are Individual and Group Therapies?

Therapy can be more than just talking. At Fresh Start Behavioral Health, Inc., our counseling professionals lend an ear to individual and group therapy sessions. A form of psychotherapy, individual and group therapy sessions allow patients to talk through the therapeutic process, expressing any upsetting thoughts, emotions, or behaviors to a trained counselor. Our certified therapists lead group therapy sessions for family counseling, couples counseling, intensive outpatient patient (IOP), substance abuse, and mental health. In group therapy, a circle of individuals gathers and discusses their issues together. One of our therapists leads and listens during the session, providing constructive feedback. Patients may be led to individual and group therapies as part of a treatment or aftercare program to help them cope with mental health or substance abuse disorders. Our expert team of counselors provides patients in West Carrollton, Dayton, and Cincinnati, OH the coping tools they need to help manage their conditions. Patients in the Greater Cincinnati/Dayton area looking for help can reach out to schedule a consultation with our team.

What Are the Benefits of Individual and Group Therapy?

For many individuals struggling with mental or behavioral health issues, psychotherapy can be life-changing. Whether you choose an individual or group setting, therapy offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Provides a safe, supportive environment to discuss your struggles
  • Supplies tools and coping mechanisms to help you manage behaviors and feelings
  • Teaches patients how to communicate and navigate conflicts with other people
  • Can help improve your relationships and ability to handle day-to-day challenges

What Can I Expect From Individual and Group Therapies?

Revolutionized by Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis, psychotherapy or talk therapy explores how one thinks and feels. By speaking through situations, behaviors, and emotions, patients, under the supervision of a certified therapist, can change how they react to or cope with problems and focus on their well-being. Our therapists may employ a wide array of coping strategies and techniques to help patients modify how they think or emotionally react to significant situations. Research shows that group therapy particularly helps people with substance abuse issues, depression, and anxiety, among other mental health disorders. Groups are set up according to the type of therapy needed, such as:

  • Educational: Individuals discuss related behaviors and consequences of mental health and substance abuse.
  • Skills development: These groups focus on ways to abstain from drugs or alcohol.
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy: Therapists help identify the behaviors that contribute to abusing drugs or alcohol and direct attention to relapse prevention.
  • Support groups: Fellow patients provide care and support for each other through communication and solving problems in a group setting.
  • Interpersonal groups: These sessions consider emotional development and childhood concerns that may lead to poor decisions and impulsive actions.

Individual therapy sessions may provide a number of benefits, such as confidentiality, personal attention, and intense analysis and treatment. Group therapy sessions provide a therapeutic alliance among patients who collaboratively give and receive support, communicate emotions, and socialize in an empathetic atmosphere where they don’t have to feel isolated in their problems.

About Us
What kinds of problems can be addressed with individual and group therapy?

Both individual and group therapy can address a wide range of issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, trauma, addiction, substance abuse, and personal growth.

Do I need individual psychotherapy or group therapy?

The decision between individual and group therapy depends on personal preferences and the specific needs of the patient. Individual therapy allows for one-on-one attention, while group therapy offers a supportive environment with shared experiences. Some patients may benefit from a combination of both. Our knowledgeable and caring professionals can help you decide which therapy environment may be most beneficial and comfortable for you following a consultation.

How long will I need therapy?

The duration of individual or group therapy varies depending on the nature and complexity of the issues, as well as individual progress. Some patients may find relief and achieve their goals in a few sessions, while others may benefit from longer-term therapy for ongoing support and personal development. The decision is often made collaboratively between the client and the therapist.
