The aim of all therapy, including group therapy, is to affect basic changes in the
intrapsychic equilibrium of each client. Group therapy allows an individual to
participate in the therapeutic process with several other people at the same time.
Group therapy allows the individual to build relationships, model and practice
appropriate behaviors and skills, give and receive peer and group feedback and
reinforcement, and build confidence and self-esteem. The group context provides
individuals with a more "real life" opportunities for interpersonal learning and
development of social skills.
