At Avalon Malibu, we’ve seen the benefits that can come when individuals have access to different therapeutic options. In this blog, we’re going to cover what didactic therapy groups are. We’ll also go over what you can expect when attending one and if they could be the right choice for you. As always, feel free to reach out to our Avalon Malibu staff if you’re unsure about your treatment options. We can also help if you want to learn more about the various possibilities.
Didactic Therapy Groups
In a didactic therapy group, individuals have the opportunity to learn from others and focus on their problem-solving skills. In many settings, group leaders will present the group with a problem or scenario and then they’ll be asked how they would deal with that situation. Through this, individuals get to practice their own critical thinking skills. They also have the opportunity to learn from others and see different perspectives.
Didactic therapy groups can be especially beneficial for individuals who are struggling with substance use. When a group leader puts forth a problem related to substance use, the entire group can get multiple perspectives. They can also understand how different people would deal with that scenario.
Is This Right for You?
If you’re wondering whether or not didactic therapy groups are the right choice for you, there are a few different things you should consider. One important thing to take into account is your communication skills. Whether you have strong communication skills or you want to work on them, this could be the right type of therapy for you.
Another thing to consider when deciding if this could be the right type of therapy for you is if you’d be able to be open with a group of people you may not know. Didactic therapy often requires transparency, so think about if this is something you’d feel comfortable with.
We offer a variety of different therapeutic options so that individuals can explore which ones make the most sense for them and then start their treatment journey off on the right note. We’ve seen lots of success with didactic therapy groups and would love to discuss if they could be the right option for you.
