Live Webinar – Groups and Group Processing

The power of group processing in healing and treatment has been consistently supported in research. This workshop will consider strategies presented by SAMHSA/CSAT TIP 41, Irvin Yalom’s The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy and current research with an emphasis on application to substance use disorder treatment in group settings. In addition we will consider the role that the stages of change model and motivational interviewing can play in group therapy.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will consider how they can apply principles of effective group processes in their specific work environment.
  2. Participants will consider their perspective and the perspective of group participants.
  3. Participants will consider what makes group work effective and what may reduce group work effectiveness.
  4. Participants will consider group stages and how they can effectively respond to them.
  5. Participants will consider Yalom’s view of “problem group members” and potential strategies to respond to these group members.
