Group therapy allows individuals to learn and try out new ways of relating to people, with the added benefit of getting spontaneous feedback from other group members. Also, one can observe how others relate to one another in similar situations. Expressing your own feelings about what someone says or does in the group is encouraged by the therapist. Committing to ground rules, deciding as a group what to talk about, establishing trust and honesty are all dynamic aspects of group therapy. Experiencing comfort, support and confrontation in the presence of a professional therapist can create new possibilities for resolving conflicts and working through fear and other unbearable feelings that have occured in other relational contexts.
