Providing a cost-effective treatment model that is respectful of patients' needs, their strengths, and their limitations, this volume presents the first dynamic and coherent approach to group treatment for the chronically mentally ill. This flexibly bound' model structures members' variable attendance while utilizing group dynamic principles to maximize therapeutic opportunities. The author focuses on the impact and opportunities of group treatment to help members overcome inhibitions in expressing their needs, assert themselves, and manage the inevitable hurts and disappointments in their relationships. The group functions as a transition point from which members can learn new ways of interacting and then apply them in their everyday lives.
