Meet Our Team Of PTSD Psychiatrists

Overview

Group therapy can be very beneficial in the treatment of PTSD especially as it reduces the sense of isolation of patients who may otherwise feel a lack of connection facing their struggles alone. However, group therapy alone may not be sufficient and a patient may benefit from engaging in individual psychotherapy as well in conjunction. This is because the patient may not get the benefit of having a therapist’s one-on-one attention in a group setting which they can only receive in an individual therapy session. A group therapy session, due to its time constraints and its design to accommodate the common issues faced by all members with PTSD, would not delve deeper into the patient’s individual experience with PTSD, for which individual therapy acts as a great adjunct treatment. Another reason for not delving deeper into a patient’s experience in a group therapy setting is to protect the other members who have the potential to get triggered themselves, thereby maintaining the group as a safe space.
