Benefits of Group Therapy Sessions for PTSD

Dr. Yahaira M Patin - PTSD2023

At the Emotional Trauma Recovery Center, we offer different group treatment alternatives that can help you manage your PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms.

After the traumatic event, the person begins to think differently about himself and the world around him. This can contribute to avoidance symptoms, and often to feeling misunderstood by others. Group Therapy offers multiple benefits for your mental health, among them are:

  • Strengthening support and motivation network
  • Reduce isolation
  • Increases social skills and emotional connection
  • Learn coping skills
  • Safe space to express emotions
  • Greater self-awareness
  • Increased cognitive flexibility
  • Exposure to different perspectives
  • Developing empathy and understanding
  • Opportunity to practice communication skills

The group therapy offered at the Emotional Trauma Recovery Clinic helped me find peace of mind. They helped me develop new skills to control my emotions, I achieved a balance between my thoughts and behaviors. Now I feel more capable of facing the events of daily life.
