Summary:
"In this training video, Rod Mullen explores the evolution of encounter groups, beginning with the first groups created by Synanon founder Chuck Dederich in the 1950s. Mullen discusses the essential elements of these first groups including honesty, authenticity, and mutual self-help-elements that are still core to encounter groups today. He highlights that although the brutal confrontational style of the first groups have softened, the commitment to hold oneself and other accountable remains central. He also discusses the challenges that face encounter groups and offers guidance on how to work within managed care systems while retaining the traditions that make encounter groups such an effective means for change. You will learn about the integral elements of encounter groups that have remained unchanged since the 1950s, and significant ways that encounter groups have changed; how to implement strategies for running effective encounter groups and overcoming impasses; and learn the keys to running marathon groups, fostering moral growth within groups, and working through trauma in groups. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." Supplied by publisher.
