The Secret to an Effective Therapeutic Group

Therapeutic groups can be tricky! After all, the clinician is outnumbered in a group setting and that can be intimidating.


This candid course discusses what it really takes to operate an effective group. These innovative group principles were gathered during the author's 20+ years working in "real life" social service. Learn how to deal effectively with resistant clients, inspire meaningful change in behaviors, and specific clinical strategies to ensure an effective group. Discover the #1 benefit of group counseling (from the client's perspective) and learn the simple test that can tell you how well your clinical group is functioning.


This course is appropriate for practitioners of all levels. Course content applies to various client populations (i.e., addiction, mental health, etc.) and is relevant for services provided in a variety of settings (clinics, shelters, jails, etc.).
