The American Psychological Association says that group therapy can be an effective way for individuals to address issues they are struggling with, ultimately leading to positive life changes. A typical group session is led by one or more trained professionals, and will feature a group of between five and fifteen patients. Therapy groups tend to meet for one to two hours each week, and some individuals may choose to enroll in individual therapy sessions to complement the work their therapy group does. The topics covered in group therapy vary: while some groups will have a more generalized focus (like helping improve self esteem issues or social skills), others will take a more specific one (like substance abuse or depression).
In terms of treating depression, studies have strongly suggested that group therapy is an effective treatment route. A 2019 study looked into how effective a web and mobile based group program was in treating individuals struggling with depression. Over the study’s course, its participants reported that they experienced significant improvements in their overall health and symptoms of depression. Furthermore, a three month follow up period was conducted in the study’s participants, who reported stable improvements over its course. A 2014 study reported that group treatment for depression is likely to cause significant improvements in individuals at both individual and group levels.
