Focus will be on how groups can be utilized to advance the tasks of the group, impact on group members, and how the professional uses oneself to achieve the group’s objectives. Special attention will be paid to how groups provide a powerful resource for professionals. Use of multifamily groups as a therapeutic tool will also be presented.
