Description

How does a therapist go about starting a psychotherapy group? In this practical guide the reader finds the elements, both attitudinal and procedural, needed for starting a therapy group. The processes of obtaining referrals, selecting clients, orienting and educating clients, and preparing clients for psychotherapy are covered in clear step-by-step procedures. Tables and charts are provided for the necessary record keeping. The initial chapters detail the important stages leading up to the first therapy session. Eminent group therapists present special chapters on various therapeutic approaches. The topics of terminating groups and the role of the therapist close this pragmatic guide to therapy groups.

A Guide to Starting Psychotherapy Groups assists psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, nurse clinicians, pastoral counselors, school and college counselors and other trained therapists in the process of forming and maintaining groups.

Review quote

Prepublication Review
"While there are several books on the dynamics of group psychotherapy, none of the available books take up the process of starting a group with any clarity...an excellent introduction to the start-up process. I would recommend it to students and psychotherapists".
Henry Spitz, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Director, Group Psychotherapy Program, Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons
