Benefits of group therapy include:
Group therapy is very effective for adolescents for many reasons. Teens have a good cognitive grasp of what emotions are and can distinguish subtle differences between feelings. At the same time, they are also learning how to think abstractly and process their own thoughts which often leads to conflicting feelings. As a result, feelings can be confusing and overwhelming for adolescents.
Through group therapy, teens can communicate with their peers in a way that normalizes these feelings and experiences. In a safe and supportive environment, they learn about themselves, the impact their behavior has on others, and are able to receive feedback from peers who know what they are going through. At this time in their development, it is appropriate for adolescents to prefer feedback from peers rather than adults, which is another reason adolescents are often times more open to this treatment modality.
