Shenandoah Psychiatric Medicine is a group of psychiatrists in Augusta County, VA specializing in the treatment of mood and thought disorders, major depression, PTSD, Bipolar disorder, and Schizophrenia. The psychiatrists at Shenandoah Psychiatric Medicine are passionate about creating a program of care that’s the perfect fit for you. That’s why we offer comprehensive care to all of our patients through group therapy, single therapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy.
According to the American Psychological Association, group therapy is usually run by one of more psychiatrists and has between 5-15 participants. For some, group therapy is used in conjunction with individual therapy, while others only attend group therapy sessions.
Group therapy is ideal for focusing on specific topics/issues, such as addiction, grief, obesity, anger management, or depression, just to name a few.  These groups can offer an endless number of benefits that individual therapy alone may not. For example, the format of group therapy allows participants to listen to others’ experiences with similar problems, as well as to voice your own. This can help to put your problems in perspective and give you a range of ideas of ways to respond to your own circumstances.
In addition, group therapy creates a support system for participants. By participating in group therapy, they know that they’re not only in their struggles, and can get real-life advice on how to handle them. 
Also, not only do group therapy participants reap benefits from the other members of their group, everyone in the group is able to receive feedback and guidance from the mental health professionals who are leading the group.
