Group therapy takes many forms. The groups are variously referred to (often interchangeably) as San Luis Obispo County counseling groups, San Luis Obispo County support groups, San Luis Obispo County mutual support groups or peer support groups, self help groups, stress coping groups, workshops and mental health groups. They are moderated by a professional group counselor, group therapist or group psychologist and generally focus on a specific issue or client profile (e.g. men or women etc).

What to expect in a San Luis Obispo County group?
In a professionally operated support group in San Luis Obispo County, members provide each other with various types of help for a particular shared issue. The help takes the form of relating personal experiences and listening to and accepting others' experiences. San Luis Obispo County group members may also provide a sympathetic understanding and a social network.
Group Therapists or group counselors lead or facilitate the group and provide group counseling in San Luis Obispo County. They are sometimes specifically trained in group dynamics and the understanding of small group processes. So 'interpersonal learning', which can involve unfiltered feedback and confrontation between group members (and can be threatening) is safely moderated by the group therapist or group counselor in San Luis Obispo County.
