The more you believe in group therapy, the more your clients will too

Carrie discusses that 70% of clients feel more comfortable and trusting in the group therapy process when their therapists fully trust it and are immersed in it as well.

Often, it is mental or mindset blocks that the therapist has to group work that can impact the client, so when therapists are fully present and working in the group it can motivate their clients to add their piece to the table and also be present in their healing.

In well-facilitated groups, clients are never forced to share. We actually want them to learn boundaries and learn building trust and part of that is not sharing too much too soon, it’s taking their time to feel out the relationships in the room. (Carrie Haynes)

How does your community observe group therapy?

Perhaps you are excited about the prospects of group therapy, however, not many people are in your community.

If we have more accessible information and training for therapists and clients in terms of how helpful group can be, this can really change … rather than targeting clients, start to talk to therapists. (Carrie Haynes)

By increasing support and connection between therapists who offer group therapy, therapists can support one another by referring to, working together, learning their different therapy styles and what each group offers.

If you are in a group practice, work on building a group therapy culture within your practice. The best way to get started in having a group therapy session is by taking three or four of your own clients who struggle with the same issue and work with them together.
