FAQs About Group Therapy in Metuchen, NJ
Why Should I Consider Group Therapy?
We know that the idea of group therapy might feel scary, awkward, and unfamiliar. You might not be sure if it’s the right fit for you. Before shutting down the idea altogether, consider how group therapy can benefit you in the short- and long-term. In the short term, group therapy provides extra support and guidance on some of life’s toughest issues. Group therapy can also help long-term by teaching you skills you’ll continue to use for years. The truth is that you’ll never know how you can benefit from group therapy until you experience it for yourself. In other words, the best way to find out what group therapy is really like is to give it a try.

- Confidentiality that is difficult, or impossible, to find elsewhere
- Social and communication skills to use in the outside world
- Strength to find your voice and express yourself in new ways

Is Group Therapy Confidential?
Everyone who attends our group(s) agrees to maintain a high level of confidentiality in the group sessions. This means that each participant agrees not to share any other group member’s identifying and personal information with others. This confidentiality is integral to creating a safe space.
The facilitator of the group is a mandated reporter and therefore may need to break confidentiality when it comes to the safety and health of others. Limits to confidentiality include threats of suicide, threats of grave bodily harm to another person, or suspected child or elder abuse.
