Psychotherapy groups are just what they sound like: psychotherapy in a group format. Usually these groups have somewhere between 4 and 12 people and are facilitated by a therapist trained in group psychotherapy. Psychotherapy groups take many forms. Some are focused on the learning of specific skills. Others are focused on getting support from others. Most have some combination of these elements. Here at Michigan Medicine we have over 40 groups treating a variety of problem areas. Below is a list of these groups with information that may help you decide if the group is a good fit for you.
