Group Therapy

What is group therapy?

Evidence based practices are at the forefront of our clinical product here at Camino. Group Therapy has for decades, been recognised as a highly effective method of treatment. The main types of Group Therapy used here at Camino are as follows:

  • Psychodynamic process groups
  • Psychodrama
  • Focussed Expressive groups
  • Psychoeducational groups
  • Twelve Step Facilitation, Cognitive Behavioural, Gestalt groups

Group Therapy is central to treatment at Camino Recovery.  Although speaking about personal issues to others may be a new concept, Group Therapy offers a supportive environment in which to cover a wide range of issues more effectively.  This allows you to focus on what matters to you, while gaining the insight that comes from sharing your experiences and those of other people.

What are the benefits of group therapy?

Group Therapy is a powerful technique that has huge advantages over individual therapy:

  • Putting things into perspective and gaining support/insight from others
  • Learn to break out of isolation
  • Learning to communicate (speaking, listening, asking for help)
  • Modelling
  • Dealing with confrontation
  • Providing a focussed platform (time and space) in which to deal with certain issues

Working in a group gives you the reassurance that you are not alone. Following a clear set of principles it strengthens the recovery process by promoting self-esteem and encouraging balanced, supportive and non-judgemental relationships that can help to sustain your recovery.
