Description

This book presents a detailed description of a new group method called Planned Group Counselling (PGC). This method was intentionally created to cope with the very reluctant behaviours found in chemically dependent and psychiatric patients: lateness, irregular attendance, premature termination, and non-compliance with therapeutic directives. This book provides the readers with a step-by-step guide for implementing PGC, including plans and psychological exercises which are designed to further develop intra-and interpersonal skills. Detailed descriptions of interventions are also included to help the group leader with a variety of difficult behaviours.
