What is family/group therapy?

Also known as: family therapy, group therapy, family group therapy, multiple family group therapy.

Family and group therapy are both forms of psychological counseling that involve multiple participants and can take many forms. Families can all go to therapy together to improve communication and address conflicts.

Group therapy often involves counseling a group of people with similar concerns and utilizing the support of the group as a therapeutic intervention.
