Playa Del Rey Support Groups and Group Therapy
Group therapy takes many forms. The groups are variously referred to (often interchangeably) as Playa Del Rey counseling groups, Playa Del Rey support groups, Playa Del Rey mutual support groups or peer support groups, self help groups, stress coping groups, workshops and mental health groups. They are moderated by a professional group counselor, group therapist or group psychologist and generally focus on a specific issue or client profile (e.g. men or women etc).

Before joining a Playa Del Rey support group, first see if the group's issue focus is consistent with your needs. If there are no groups offering support around your issue, feel free to contact these professionals in Playa Del Rey to ask for a referral to alternative groups nearby.
What to expect in a Playa Del Rey group?
In a professionally operated support group in Playa Del Rey, members provide each other with various types of help for a particular shared issue. The help takes the form of relating personal experiences and listening to and accepting others' experiences. Playa Del Rey group members may also provide a sympathetic understanding and a social network.

Group therapists or group counselors lead or facilitate the group and provide group counseling in Playa Del Rey. They are sometimes specifically trained in group dynamics and the understanding of small group processes. So 'interpersonal learning', which can involve unfiltered feedback and confrontation between group members (and can be threatening) is safely moderated by the group therapist or group counselor in Playa Del Rey.
