Group counseling is a form of therapy which posits that people benefit from shared experiences. Usually group counseling is focused on a particular issue, for example, peer pressure/bullying or raising healthy teenagers. While a therapist usually manages group therapy, contributions from the members in the group and support of each other in the group enhance the success of the group. It has been found that assembling people with similar issues and knowing that other people share these concerns is not any only comforting, but extremely powerful in accomplishing the results that the individuals in the group long for.
