Group sessions for adults
Learning is more effective when it is combined with activity and reflection. The best form of wisdom is that which comes through experience. Group activities for adults include conjoint sessions for couples, family therapy sessions, as well as small groups with unrelated participants. We conduct self-help programs for people with comparable emotional turmoil so they can exchange ideas and reflect; educative sessions for relatives of people with psychological problems and interactive participative workshops for larger groups of adults. This facilitates activity-assisted learning, and is a good platform for building social skills and enhancing one’s social quotient (SQ). These are planned after the initial stabilization with the individual sessions and in keeping with the client’s preferences and requirements.
Group session characteristics
The group workshops are targeted on subjects of stress management, time control, listening skills, effective interpersonal interaction, relationship building, relaxation training, anger management and the like. They build upon individual potencies by enabling people to open up and express their views, help set positive impressions, allow sharing of ideas, and add to their own confidence. The reflective learning experience of a group sitting can be subsequently incorporated in the one-to-one guidance session with the participants in the subsequent sessions. The net gain is a supra-maximal learning experience, which gets clubbed with idea exchange through interaction.
Cohesiveness is a primary therapeutic factor in mitigating change. Feeling one with several others, sharing personal feelings and understanding the plights of others from their viewpoint inculcates of empathy, improves social skills and instills hope. Group members achieve a greater level of self-awareness through the course of interacting with others in the group. Their feedback impacts and influences each participant’s behavior. It may help attain greater levels of insight into the origin of one’s problems and the unconscious motivations that underlie one’s behavior.
