Group therapy is a psychotherapeutic technique where a trained therapist will guide a group of recovering individuals as they discuss various topics related to their illness or recovery. During this session, individuals learn about these topics from the therapist, and from the other people involved in the group session.
This form of therapy is based on the fact that recovering individuals can learn and heal by understanding the experiences of others. It is seen to be effective in symptom management for individuals, and helps them improve functioning. This form of therapy has proven its effectiveness in treating multiple mental health disorders including bipolar disorder.
