Variations on Teaching and Supervising Group Therapy


Learn effective techniques for teaching and supervising group therapy. This unique new volume brings together teaching and supervisory models for a host of theoretical orientations, including psychodynamic, family systems, psychodrama, gestalt, and transactional analysis.

Variations on Teaching and Supervising Group Therapy is essential reading for mental health professionals
  • who currently conduct groups but who lack the specialized training for becoming a supervisor
  • who currently teach group therapy from one theoretical orientation and want to learn about other modalities
  • who teach academic courses on group therapy and want to expose students to a broader perspective of group modalities than the usual one or two models – psychoanalytic and activity groups – usually taught in schools

    The contributing authors are social workers and professionals from other disciplines who represent a cross section of the teachers of the various types of groups being conducted in the United States today. They describe an exciting array of teaching formats – one-day workshops, semester-long courses, year-long training programs, weekly supervision sessions, and outside consultation – and settings, including family service agencies, child guidance centers, short-term health maintenance organizations, freestanding group training institutions, and private practice.

    Some of the highlights of this practical book include
  • an examination of the most commonly used format in group therapy today – psychodynamics
  • a demonstration of using family systems theory to understand the group therapy participants and process
  • the key concepts and history of psychodrama
  • the key concepts and basic aspects of a gestalt training program for practicing therapists
  • strategies for teaching social work students
  • a look at the skills needed for conducting group therapy with children
  • a model for training therapists who conduct short-term groups
