The book also contains information on such vital issues as how to develop an internal system that promotes referrals from across lines of professional disciplines, train gatekeeper personnel to identify potential group referrals, gain organizational support for all clinicians to facilitate group therapy sessions, and implement the time-tested co-therapy model. The author offers practical advice on training staff members to meet the unique challenges of group therapy. Using illustrative examples, Roller shows how to form groups, select patients, develop long- and short-term goals for group members, and remain flexible within the structure of the group therapy process. He also explores the staffing issues of a model group therapy program and defines the responsibilities and roles of the members.
