The author argues that the collaborative nature of group therapy lends itself to time-limited treatment. Combining the best elements of group work and solution focused brief therapy, she covers topics including how to learn the model, design a group and recruit members, identify exceptions to a group member's self-destructive behaviors and thoughts, help members to concentrate on their successes, and keep the group solution focused when therapists or members fall back into old patterns. Contains case examples and session transcripts together with reproducible forms. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
