This course presents concepts, techniques, and processes of the time-limited Cognitive-Behavioral Group Therapy model as they are applied to eight specific diagnoses. Step-by-step guidelines cover the processes of selecting participants, moving through the different phases of group therapy, functioning as a group therapy leader, developing therapeutic content, and structuring group sessions.
