Working with groups
In Gestalt therapy, a group is viewed as an integrated psycho-social environment. Group therapy is practiced where there is a group leader, who is a part of the group as well as the captain of the ship. It is his/her job to lead the conversational flow, but the opinions and beliefs of the group members affect him/her as well. The point of group therapy is the development and healing of different individuals in a unified environment, keeping in mind the emotions, attitudes, and behaviours of the others and thus growing individually.
