Frequently Asked Questions
What is Group IOP?
An interpersonal therapy group is a group of people (usually 4 - 8 people) who meet together weekly with one or two therapists to work through relational issues that lead to psychological symptoms or dissatisfaction in relationships.
Why should I join group therapy?
