Validating someone’s feelings, emotions and traumas is one of the most important things you can do to help them through the process. Groups can help all kinds of people and situations including trauma such as rape or abuse, intellectual disabilities and divorce and depression (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2018, p. 104). There are many potential benefits that Talia might gain through group therapy. I think it will help Talia to not feel alone through group therapy by hearing others stories and experiences. I also think it would help Talia to validate her trauma and make her feel she is not alone That what happened to her is not her fault and it is not acceptable. Other benefits of group therapy can include connecting with others, decision making and goal achievement (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2018, p. 104). I think the two most useful benefits for Talia in her experience are Mutual assistance and connecting with others. Mutual assistance can help proved Talia the emotional and spiritual support that she may need to cope and get through her experience and trauma. Along

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
