This monthly book club will provide a structure for reading through the content of the book, Adventure Group Psychotherapy, with the primary goal of aligning the book’s major themes with the participant’s actual practice. Each session will begin with a 10-minute overview of the selected content by the authors followed by breakout groups to discuss how the ideas presented play out in practice. The authors will use questions to prompt small-group discussion and our own group work skills to facilitate the learning in every session.
What Will You Learn?
- Participants will incorporate the use of the Facilitated Wave model to understand their role in effective adventure-group practice.
- Participants will learn how their actions in each of the phases of group work practice (assessment, matching, shaping, facilitating, guiding, and evaluating) impact the development of the optimal adventure group interventions.
- Participants will experience support and encouragement in their adventure-group practice during the course of the book club.
