Learning to Love Groups

 

There is often a love-hate relationship when facilitating groups in mental health, substance use, and healthcare settings. Behavioral health and healthcare practitioners involved in facilitating groups have all too often not received the practical training and resource support to optimize the benefit of group work for their clients. Learn a framework for effective group facilitation that is practical and accessible to practitioners at all levels of training and experience. Learn to love groups again and learn about future opportunities to enhance the group skills, knowledge, and effectiveness of your workforce.
