Group therapy

Dinamically oriented small group are of 5-9 persons and a group leader (therapist, counselor) work together. Sessions are usually 2x45 minutes, weekly or twice a week. Group therapy lasts longer (1-2 years). This length is necessary for real, lasting changes. Analitic small groups can be helpful in a variety of problems, but it is best for dealing with severe (long lasting) relationship matters, problems (problems with contact making, regularly emerging partnership problems, marital conflicts etc.). Verbal technique is used: you need to speak to the group or group members during the session. It enables learning more about our own reactions to others, to see what reactions we trigger in others, we can try out new manners, new behaviours, our personality can get richer this way.
There are self-knowledge groups, without therapeutic goals but with the aim of personality development.
