Positive Outcomes of Group Therapy: Imparting Information

The inevitable exchange of information in a group setting helps members get from one day to the next. Twelve Step groups focus on the “One Day At A Time” approach to facing personal hurdles. Group members share behaviors that make it possible to stay in the present.

Psychoeducational groups offer members the opportunity to reflect on what they have learned and at the same time apply that learning within the group setting. The information shared is personal and tends to be experienced as motivational. From this exchange, members may be moved to make changes in behavior.

Mutually shared success gives positive energy to the group and encourages change. Ultimately changed behavior leads to changed thought patterns, which can positively influence emotional states.
