Group & Family Consultation
Group consultation helps individuals work through and address their problems by interacting with a group of people with similar struggles, led by a facilitator who moderates the group discussion. Group sessions offer a safe and confidential setting for sharing personal feelings, experiences, thoughts, and issues while making it possible for each individual to receive feedback and support from others. The role of the facilitator during group sessions focuses on directing the conversation with probing questions and allowing ideas to flow freely in order to bring about catharsis. The facilitator can do this by employing a myriad of approaches. Sometimes, group sessions can be used to offer educational lectures or workshops on different coping mechanisms, if the group so wishes. The duration and frequency of sessions, as well as the number of group members, are dependent on the needs of the group and the shared purpose for guidance.
