Preparing and Screening Potential Group Members
A workshop designed to investigate the importance of member selection and preparation that affect each member’s group experience
Presenter: Keith Rand, LMFT, CGP, FAGPA
Experienced group therapists understand the importance of thoroughly screening prospective group members and of preparing them adequately to get the most benefit out of the therapy experience. Too often, when this process is not given the attention it deserves, group members struggle to know how to use the group and may even terminate their participation prematurely. In this workshop, we will discuss why this process is so crucial and how to conduct these individual meetings so that group members begin their participation on the right foot.
