What are the differences among individual, marital (couples), family, and group therapy?
  • Individual therapy is a form of treatment involving one client focusing on the mental, emotional and relational concerns presented by the client.
  • Couples therapy is a treatment offered to couples to address relational difficulties and facilitate the process of healing and problem solving.
  • Family therapy is a form of therapy to treat the family rather than the individual. The entire family is brought together to change the unhealthy family patterns and interactions.
  • Group therapy is a type of therapy usually involving at least four non-related individuals who are similar in some area, such as gender, age, mental health, or presenting difficulty.
