                                          Group Processes

Group therapy is an effective treatment option for a wide range of disorders and is much more cost-efficient than individual therapy. As a result, many insurance companies are showing preference for group therapy over individual therapy. This has led to more therapists including group therapy in their practices, making it very likely that you will facilitate group therapy in the future. To successfully develop groups and apply this therapeutic approach, it is essential for you to have an understanding of group processes and formation.

This week, as you examine group processes and stages of formation, you explore curative factors of groups and strategies for managing intragroup conflict. You also assess progress for a client family receiving psychotherapy and develop progress and privileged psychotherapy notes for the family.

  

                         Assignment: Group Processes and Stages of Formation

In your role, you must understand group processes and stages of formation, as this will help you develop groups and determine an individual’s appropriateness for group therapy. Whether you are at the beginning stages of group formation or facilitating a session for a developed group, it is important to consider factors that may influence individual client progress. 

For this Assignment, as you examine the video Group Therapy: A Live Demonstration in this week’s Learning Resources, consider the group’s processes, stages of formation, and other factors that might impact the effectiveness of group therapy for clients.

                                                                                To prepare:

· Review this week’s Learning Resources and reflect on the insights they provide 

  on group processes.

· View the media, Group Therapy: A Live Demonstration, and consider the group 

 dynamics. (THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT IS ATTACHED TO THIS ASSIGNMENT)

                                                           

                                               The Assignment

  In 3-page paper, address the following:

· Explain the group’s processes and stage of formation.

· Explain curative factors that occurred in the group. Include how these factors 

   might impact client progress.

· Explain intragroup conflict that occurred and recommend strategies for 

  managing the conflict. Support your recommendations with evidence-based 

  literature.
