When Talking Won't Work: Implementing Experiential Group Activities with Addicted Clients
Hagedorn, W. Bryce; Hirshhorn, Meredith A.
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v34 n1 p43-67 Mar 2009
Traditional talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioral techniques, are often ineffective when working with addicted clients for many reasons. By tapping into the power of the group modality, experiential activities can serve as a powerful facilitator of insight and behavior change. The authors provide a brief review of the literature followed by the presentation of three effective exercises for groups of addicted clients. (Contains 1 figure.)
