Group experiences can be impactful and life-changing opportunities to help clients heal, gain accountability, and re-evaluate their situations. While there are a variety of group topics provided in multiple group support settings such as retreats, group therapy, and psycho-education, it is important to understand what type of experience is most beneficial to clients in order to design the most appropriate curriculum. This presentation will provide participants the tools they need to properly execute impactful group experiences that leave clients more empowered to take control of their lives.
