Brief Group Treatment : Practical Training for Therapists and Counselors - 98 edition

Brief Group Treatment : Practical Training for Therapists and Counselors (ISBN10: 0534355544; ISBN13: 9780534355548)
ISBN13: 978-0534355548
ISBN10: 0534355544

Summary: This one-of-a-kind road map for students and new group leaders combines a unique developmental model of brief group process--based on the generic chronological processes of a group--with modifications for specific clinical populations. The chronological-process model was developed and researched in the authors? own laboratories, empirically tested for more than a decade, and employed successfully for years. This clearly identifiable process underlies all small groups
, making it appropriate in all settings, serving all populations.

Features:
  • The book is organized into two sections. Part One offers a description of the natural unfolding of a generic model of group process through four commonly identifiable phases. Part Two includes applications of the model with some of the most common populations served by groups today and in the foreseeable future.
  • Six types of groups, each dealing with a different clinical population, are covered. These include groups for adolescents, adult children of alcoholics, couples, and people with eating disorders. Also discussed are single-gender groups and groups that deal with domestic violence.
  • The book is based on the crucial supposition that group leaders must be aware of group processes. With exceptional clarity and passion, the authors provide group leaders with the direction needed to process and recommend relevant interventions.
  • The authors have been training group leaders in educational and mental-health fields for almost 30 years.
