Planned Group Counseling: An Alternative Group Method for Reluctant Chemically Dependent and Psychiatric Patients


"This book presents a detailed description of a new group method called Planned Group Counseling (PGC). This method was created to cope with the very reluctant behaviors found in chemically dependent and psychiatric patients: lateness, irregular attendance, premature termination, and non-compliance with therapeutic directives. This book provides the reader with a step-by-step guide for implementing PGC, including plans and psychological exercises designed to develop intra- and interpersonal skills."
