Group Psychotherapy

What is an Interpersonal Process Group?

Interpersonal group therapy is a powerful way to learn about ourselves and our relationships with others. It is common for people to confuse interpersonal group therapy with support groups or psychoeducational groups, in which people talk about shared experiences and offer one another encouragement or learn  behavioral skills. While support groups can be helpful, this model is not consistent with what occurs in a well-led interpersonal process group. An interpersonal therapy group is a group of people (usually 6 - 8 people) who meet together weekly to work through relational issues that lead to unwanted psychological symptoms or dissatisfaction in relationships. 

What are some reasons why a person may join an interpersonal therapy group?

People who join and interpersonal therapy group usually want to be able to relate better with others and to feel better about themselves. Reasons a person may join an interpersonal group include:

  • Feeling a chronic sense of dissatisfaction in relationships

  • Difficulty trusting others

  • Struggling to forge connected and meaningful relationships

  • To more thoroughly understand your people-pleasing tendencies

  • Relying on alcohol or drugs to socialize

  • Struggling to communicate one’s thoughts, feelings, and needs directly

  • Being controlling (or easily controlled) in relationships

  • Feeling that one’s relationships are shallow

  • To help with social anxiety

  • Frequently experiencing loneliness

  • Difficulty with anger and one's own aggressive impulses in relationship to others

  • Having trouble with self-esteem

As you can see, there is a broad range of issues clients wish to address in group therapy and this list is merely a starting point to offer a window into the possible reasons someone might seek out group.
