Group Therapy for Introverts

1. What is the decision or change (e.g. clinical topic, practice guideline, system design, delivery of care) you are facing or struggling with where a summary of the evidence would be helpful?

Analysis of benefits and harms of group therapy on patients by extroversion/introversion score? Is it of equal benefit to introverts, or could it do more harm than good?

2. Why are you struggling with this issue?

It seems so obviously better suited to extroverts than introverts, and so obviously carries a risk of harm to introverts, that I want to know that's been studied?

3. What do you want to see changed? How will you know that your issue is improving or has been addressed?

Evidenced-based medicine that places patient care as the top priority, not cost savings. Group therapy is clearly more about saving money than helping patients.
