My philosophy in group therapy

Group therapy is a supplement to individual therapy when clients feel ready to explore more or need more support in their lives. Group therapy offers a place for members to share familiar experiences with other members, which facilitates healing. Moreover, group therapy creates a space for members to experiment and apply what they have learned in their individual therapy to here and now setting.


I would call group therapy a semi-reality setting as they can get some real interactions with other members while have the group therapist's support. As a bridge between the individual therapy and the reality world, group therapy might seem stunning or scary to some folks. It thus is my job as a group therapist to promote empathy and support for the holding environment and facilitate positive feedback in the group to help members relate to each other. Through this process, members also get the opportunity to reflect on their relationship patterns in their own life experiences.

情緒虐待 Emotional Abuse

因緣際會之下我決定回來仔細看看這東西的定義範疇到底是甚麼,因為中文翻譯聽起來實在是太嚴重了,然而看了一些英文資料後發現這樣一個曖昧不明的模糊灰色地帶是跨語言也跨文化的,的確身處在情緒虐待關係裡頭的人都很難自己主動意識到自己是被傷害了。而我知道知識的力量很龐大,於是就讓我直接來翻譯一段美國政府專門關注女性健康網站的介紹。 情緒與言語虐待: 如果你沒有身體上的傷害,你可能就不會覺得你被虐待了,但事
