Sometimes when we think of child psychology we believe that a one-on-one approach may be best. Have you ever seen a depiction of an alcoholics anonymous meeting? It is done in a group for a reason. How much people want to open up about themselves is very individual, but there's security in knowing that what’s said in group, stays in group.
Here are some of the advantages of group therapy for your child –
1. Support. Your kids know they are not alone in their feelings.
2. A sounding board. Everyone gets a wider range of perspectives.
3. Listening to other’s success stories.
4. They teach. The other members of the group see you through their own eyes.
Your kids grow up in groups. From sports, to education, to scouting, etc. Social interaction and growth are promoted within groups.
