The Benefits of Group Therapy

It’s easy to have a  limited idea of what therapy looks like, but today’s episode is a welcome reminder that there are many forms of therapy to choose from. Group therapy, for instance, offers a variety of benefits traditional one-on-one therapy can’t.

Joining Dr. Fedrick for this episode of Calm, Cool and Connected is Brittany Johnson, LPC, from the Western Tidewater Community Services Board. Brittany is the Program Director for the State Opioid Response program where she oversees group sessions. She is here to talk to Dr. Fedrick about the benefits of her work in the program as well as the unique benefits of group therapy.
