In spite of the increasing demand for group psychotherapy services in institutional, community, and educational settings, countless clinicians are entering the profession with minimal training in group modalities. Teaching Group Psychotherapy and Counseling aims to illuminate the essential components for educating group leaders while examining the most current research and providing a practical outline for effective instruction. Also examined are the sequencing of group courses within the graduate curriculum, the role of modeling in skill development, the structure of the participation group, and the function of consolidation of didactic, observational and experiential learning.
