Group-based psychoanalytical psychotherapy is a type of psychotherapy, where people’s relations are being built not only with a therapist, but also with a particular group. It’s preferable to have your own individual experience before entering a group-based psychotherapy. In a group there is an opportunity to regress and there is a possibility of group’s rejection of your regress, which may become a reason of psychological trauma for this subject. It’s far better to share something intimate with one person in safe space and explain to yourself things that might be hidden during the group-based therapy. In order to understand your psychological abilities it’s preferable to set up a private therapy and then keep moving forward.
