First appeared in the United States in the 1960s, this form of therapy consists of bringing together several people with common problems.
The conscious and unconscious phenomena which establish themselves between the members of the group have a therapeutic influence on the individual himself. The participant in the group realizes that he is not alone with his problem and that others feel the same things. The group becomes a source of support and strength.
The group is very useful for people suffering from fear of intimacy, lack of confidence in themselves or others, loss of self-esteem. It is extremely effective in tackling the problems of feeling imperfect, of loneliness. It can deal with problems of difficulty in taking action and taking charge of oneself.
