Psychoeducational Groups.
Brown, Nina W.
With the growth of the health industry and the expansion of specific human services programs, a need exists not only to assist those individuals with mental health problems, but also to provide assistance to others. There is a demand for a means to provide better living for otherwise functioning people in matters of communication, grief, work relationships, and personal relationships. Focusing on psychoeducational groups to facilitate better living, this book is geared specifically toward human service education students in group classes. Psychoeducational groups are primary for mental health professionals, such as school counselors, organizational trainers, alcohol and drug education and treatment professionals, social workers, and support group leaders. This book covers principles essential to the human service student's studies. For example, included are the major theories of learning, the principles of group instruction, a unique strategy for dealing with conflict, a guide for planning and leading experimental activities, and sample materials needed for leading psychoeducational groups within business, industry, and social agencies.
