Group Psychotherapy Assessment and Practice is the definitive guide to assessment in group therapy, offering the reader a means to understand and implement group therapy screening, process, and outcome tools.

Geared to group psychotherapists as well as academics, this state-of-the-art text provides the reader with a framework to support and augment clinical judgment as part of routine clinical practice. It demonstrates how utilizing measurement-based care collaboratively with clients can help maximize therapeutic processes and mechanisms of change. This book shows how measures can improve the detection of client worsening and prevent premature dropout – two factors that contribute greatly to our duty to client care. Leading experts in the field provide examples of new measures that can enhance multicultural training and group leader cultural sensitivity, illustrating how awareness of diversity can enhance clinical practice and provide more contextually responsive treatment. Examples of cross-cultural adaptations of measurement are also included that place group therapy assessment within an international framework.

This modern guide provides practical tools such as handouts, measures to aid in member selection, and methods of tracking progress and outcome to strengthen the group leader’s effectiveness.
