Book Description

This nuts?and?bolts training manual focuses on what a relatively new group psychotherapist actually needs to do. Practical suggestions and numerous examples for all aspects of group psychotherapy are offered. The book covers the developmental phases of therapy and the clinician's role in conducting treatment, and provides concrete guidelines for handling inevitable challenges such as problematic patients, diminishing groups, excessive self?disclosure, and extra?group socializing. This training manual will be invaluable to mental health professionals, post?doctoral students, graduate students, psychiatric nurses, and marital and family counselors interested in learning about group psychotherapy.
