Attending group therapy is a great alternative or additional service for people living with a disability or chronic health condition. Therapy groups can help to combat feelings of isolation and boredom while facilitating learning and skill development.
Group Therapy programs are carefully developed to suit the needs of the participants with emphasis on learning, skill development, improved independence, and social support. The Dietitians, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists who run therapy groups assess the individual needs of participants and tailor group sessions to benefit all those who attend.
Proven benefits of Group Therapy include:
- Interacting with others experiencing similar circumstances enriches the learning experience.
- Working and learning in a group allows the opportunity to learn from peers.
- Providing a sense of support.
- Improved motivation, while decreasing social isolation and depression.
- Increased coping skills and mood.
- Improved life satisfaction.
- Effective skill development that is cost effective and convenient.
Group therapy can be utilised for cooking, activities of daily living, social skills development, exercise, and education.
This fun, social and effective way to learn and improve skills and function can be funded through the NDIS and conveniently provided by mobile therapists in many different settings from group homes, day services and community houses to retirement villages and gyms.
