Customizing Group Therapy.
Chambliss, Catherine; Oxman, Elaine
The group therapy context provides unparalleled opportunities for cost effective learning. However, within group meetings, therapists must strive to tailor psychological services to address the particular needs of individual patients. Creative means of customizing patients experiences within group are needed in order to address consumer needs appropriately, while simultaneously curbing costs. Staffing limitations mandate flexible use of group methods and enthusiastic adaptation of treatment methods originally developed for individual therapy delivery. Several strategies for customizing treatment within a cost-effective group context will be presented. (Author)
