In this newly revised edition, Philip J. Flores, a highly regarded expert in the treatment of alcoholism and in group psychotherapy, provides you with proven strategies for defeating alcohol and drug addiction through group psychotherapy. For the first time, practical applications of 12-step programs and (ital) psychodynamic groups are jointly explored, jointly explained, and jointly brought into therapeutic use. You'll examine the constructive benefits of group therapy to chemically dependent individuals--opportunities to share and identify with others who are going through similar problems, to understand their own attitudes about addiction by confronting similar attitudes in others, and to learn to communicate their needs and feelings more directly.
