For many people “group therapy can be more powerful and mutative than individual therapy,” according to Doctor Alaa Al-awadi, the spiritual Therapist who has a private practice with couples, families and groups in Australia.
There are many types of group therapy, Dr. Alaa provides.
For some groups focus on interpersonal learning. Members talk about how they feel in relation to each other. In support groups, members focus more on what’s happening in their lives outside the group.
here is encouragement to both talk about your life outside the group and also to talk about the dynamics within the group.”
There also are psychoeducational groups, where a clinician teaches members specific skills, such as anger management or dialectical behavioral therapy.
This is what Dr. Alaa provides for Groups as a spiritual Therapist.
