A practical and balanced guide to effective group therapy
In this up-to-date text, Dr. Virginia Brabender provides balanced coverage of the major treatment approaches and provides a solid background of both why and how effective group therapy is practiced. Writing in a conversational style augmented with many instructive case studies, she covers the key aspects of group therapy, from group planning to termination, and all points in between. Providing a balance of theory, contemporary applications, and personal insight, Dr. Brabender explores four major treatment approaches–interpersonal, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and problem-solving–and weighs their various advantages and disadvantages in treating a range of problems in a variety of settings.
