PSY5310 Group Therapy

Course Description

Group therapy has gained recognition as an evidence-based approach that is both critically-sound and cost-effective. This course introduces students to both theoretical and experiential understanding of group therapy. The value of multi-couple and multi-family groups is discussed. The class is introduced to psychoeducational (content), interpersonal (process-oriented), or combined (content and process) group approaches. An on-going group experience is required so that students may reflect upon their own interpersonal process to further develop the self of the therapist. An overview of multiple models and techniques are applied in experiential practice, including stages of group development, support group, group leadership, and facilitation styles.
