Group therapy is one of the most naturalistic and therapeutic opportunities for interpersonal learning and for deepening one's understanding of relationships. It acts as a unique representation in microcosm of the family, society, and civilization and therefore offers a chance to create change in oneself and in how one interacts with others that is unlike other therapy formats. It provides a corrective environment that is both an adventure of self-exploration and a possibility for profound understanding of oneself in relation to humanity and humanity's relationship to oneself. Group therapy can be a stimulating experience in combination with individual therapy, or it can stand on it's own as a unique and affordable alternative to one-on-one psychotherapy.
