Focused Brief Group Therapy is an integrative interpersonal approach to brief group therapy that uses formal assessment to guide and inform treatment.

Interpersonal relationships are an essential component of our physical and mental health, but developing meaningful relationships in today's world is an ever-present struggle. This book introduces mental health providers to focused brief group therapy (FBGT), and shows how how it can help reduce a patient's distress from loneliness and disconnection. Blending the art and science of therapy, this semi-structured model enables therapists to improve their client's existing interpersonal relationships, or develop new ones.

Part I offers an overview of the underlying constructs, integrated theory, and overall structure of FBGT. Part II provides strategies and techniques for implementation, and discusses the future of FBGT and its applications.
