"So, You Have to Run Group Today..."

As mental health and substance use programs continue to expand, so does the need for mental health professionals (MHP) to be proficient in group counseling. Although many MHP come to the field from a variety of educational backgrounds and experience, many have not received formal training in the special skills required to be an effective group facilitator. This course will provide participants with hands-on activities that illustrate how a little planning, creativity and a sense of humor serve to engage clients in the therapeutic process. Participants will also discover how to modify some techniques for various settings and populations in order to broaden their clinical repertoire.
