How Does Group Therapy Work?
What the Research into Group Therapy Says
Research into the use of group Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) demonstrates its efficiency as an intervention to reduce PTSD. There is also evidence that group MBCT can contribute to the prevention of avoidance in PTSD as well as preventing depression relapse. Additionally, recent research into effective treatment for women with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) with a tendency to self-harm found significant improvements in symptoms and behaviours after a 14-week Emotion Regulation Group Therapy (ERGT).
