An important offering of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Arizona is ongoing group psychotherapy. This brochure describes the group psychotherapy experience that we offer, including who might benefit from it, what those benefits might be, and what would be expected of you if you join one of our groups.
Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which a small, carefully selected group of individuals meets regularly with one or more therapists. Groups in our department are normally co-led by two therapists.
Our groups are interpersonal process groups, meaning that the goal of the groups is to learn about ourselves and how we interact with others, by interacting with others in an environment of mutual respect. In group psychotherapy we are encouraged to do what is so difficult in most of our interactions: Talk openly and honestly about what we are feeling and thinking, give others constructive feedback, and open ourselves to feedback about how we appear to others.
