Group psychotherapy is often the best way to work on problems, especially when the problems stem from or impact your relationships with other people. A group gives you contact with a few of your peers, along with a therapist or therapists, who are not part of your everyday life. Group can allow you a place to give and receive support, ask for honest feedback, and try out new behaviors. It is designed to be a safe environment where you can test out different ways of acting with others.
