Discussion 66650 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.
