I think group therapy is extremely helpful. The big part of it is more that you’re connecting with other people and having that connection and understanding is huge. In my experience in doing group therapy in the past, it’s not so much me being there at all, it’s the other people who are communicating, and sharing and saying, “This is your experience? This is mine as well.” And that feeling of connection that-“Yes, there are other people who understand what I’m going through, they’re there, they’ve been through it and maybe they have suggestions that I didn’t think of.” And all of that is so very, very rich, whether it’s about depression, self-esteem-whether it’s on any kind of group therapy-there are many options there for individuals who might want to seek out those kinds of experiences.
