Group therapy vs workshops
Group therapy is when a group of people meets weekly for a set amount of time, which is usually between 6-12 weeks, to focus on a particular issue that group members share. Although some group therapy allows for a drop-in format, where it is not known which group members attend week to week, I tend to run my groups in a way where all group members are expected to attend each week and new people are not allowed in once it begins. This is to ensure the highest level of confidentiality, emotional safety, and connection among group members.
Workshops are when a group of people meet for a few hours on one day. Because there is not the same amount of time for trust and bonding to build as it does over time in group therapy, the issues explored in workshops are not as deeply emotional.
