Designing, Implementing, and Evaluating a Group Therapy for Underserved Populations
Waltman, Scott H.; Hetrick, Holly; Tasker, Tamara E.
Residential Treatment for Children & Youth, v29 n4 p305-323 2012
This article presents the case of a mindfulness-based group therapy that was implemented in a residential treatment facility. The case presented comprised a group of adolescent males with disruptive behavior disorders. The group was designed to be appropriate for the unique demographics of the clients, with the intent to help the clients enhance and develop improved impulse control skills. The contents of the group were gathered and adapted from various mindfulness-based therapies. Attending the presented mindfulness group was found to produce increases in self-reported mindfulness skills and improvements in behavioral compliance. Recommendations are made for running similar groups. (Contains 3 tables.)
