This group focuses on interpersonal issues & is intended for adults (both male & female, heterosexual & LGB). Group psychotherapy helps with solving the emotional difficulties & encourages the personal development of the group participants. Group therapy focuses on interpersonal interactions, so relationship problems are addressed quite well in groups. The group can become a source of support and strength in times of stress for the participant. The feedback which members get from others on their behavior in the group helps them see maladaptive patterns of behavior, change their point of view, & help them adopt more constructive reactions
