Introduction to Group Therapy
Any behavior or chemical we use to stuff our feelings could be considered a feeling disease and affect us and others. When we have feelings that hurt, we find a way to cover up our pain. One of the ways is to fix others, instead of taking care of our own needs. Over time, we get to the point where we have no sense of our self, we lose who we are.
The healing process is to find ourselves, again. Reconnect to our feelings and walk through our pain with support, guidance and education. We need to pay attention to feelings:
- Where I feel them – heart, gut, throat, head, etc.
- What they feel like
- Other people and their feelings
- What makes me feel certain ways
- And, how to walk through different feelings – hurt, anger, sad, fear, etc.
In group therapy, we discuss feelings, learn ways to release them in a healthy way, learn different tools and techniques. Learning honesty with ourselves and others is the only way we can move through our repressed pain from our past. We learn that when we talk about feelings they have less power over us. Honesty and willingness to change is the essence of our growth. Receiving feedback is a part of group even though it may be scary at first. Sometimes, other people see what we don’t.
Safety is another part of the group process. When we feel safe to be vulnerable, the healing process begins. Click on the links below to read more about different types of group therapy:
