One often overlooked form of mental health treatment is group therapy. It has proven to be an effective and efficient form of treatment for many of the issues that people experience in today’s world. Groups address personal issues where they typically occur — with other people. We live, work and play as memebers of groups, and therapy is no different.
In a typical group therapy session, a professionally-trained therapist leads the discussion as members work to express their problems, feelings, ideas and reactions. This provides members with the opportunity to learn with and from other people.
The Family Institute offers a number of different group therapies to help individuals work out some of their issues in a social setting with people who have similar issues. Visit our website to learn more about the groups available at our downtown Chicago, Evanston and Northbrook locations.
