Social therapy is a form of group psychotherapy, in which clients work together with therapists, to create a therapeutic environment that facilitates social-emotional growth. It is a collaborative, creative and non-medical approach, designed to help people who are in emotional pain, experiencing relationship or family difficulties, or just feeling stuck in their lives.
The group, often made up of people of different ages and backgrounds, creates an environment that will benefit all its members, through collaboration and improvisation. Together, participants create the conditions of their own therapy, where the group is the therapeutic unit. This allows group members to continue supporting each other after the workshop leader leaves.
