Description:

Hard cover with dust jacket. Fine condition. 242 pages. In our managed care era, group therapy, long the domain of traditional psychodynamically oriented therapists, has emerged as the best option for millions of Americans. However, the process can be frustratingly slow, and studies show that patients actually feel worse after months of group treatment than when they began. Can and should "the group" speed a person's progress? Now, in this "must have" book, marriage and family therapist Linda Metcalf persuasively argues that the collaborative nature of group therapy actually lends itself to time-limited treatment. She combines the best elements of group work and the popular solution focused brief therapy approach to create new opportunities for practitioners and patients alike.Among the topics covered in this valuable guide are: Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: The author argues that the collaborative nature of group therapy lends itself to time-limited treatment. Combining the best elements of group work and solution focused brief therapy, she covers topics including how to learn the model, design a group and recruit members, identify exceptions to a group member's self-destructive behaviors and thoughts, help members to concentrate on their successes, and keep the group solution focused when therapists or members fall back into old patterns. Contains case examples and session transcripts together with reproducible forms. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
