NACCTP: Group Counseling Skills
with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LP, LAC, MAC, RN, ACS
DESCRIPTION: Group counseling or psychotherapy is a powerful tool in delivering addiction treatment services. Groups have many therapeutic elements and effects that draw people into the culture of recovery. Groups provide useful information; allow one or two therapists, depending on group size, to facilitate the group process which helps a number of clients simultaneously; and provide positive peer support and pressure for recovery. This class will help aspiring addiction counselors understand the use of group therapy in the addiction treatment field and demonstrate the skills necessary to facilitate a therapy group. The class will focus on the group process and will discuss diversity within groups as well as the many challenges a group leader may face. The class will also present models of effective group practice. Additionally, this and all addiction counselor classes seek to enhance the ability of the counselor to offer treatment services in a manner that respects gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cultural, familial, systemic, and socioeconomic diversity.
