 Utilizing Group Process

Show Summary Details


A solution-focused group treatment model is different from most traditional group models in that the group process is secondary to an individual's search of solutions, which is essentially an individual exercise. Nonetheless, group process constitutes a major and positive force for change. This chapter discusses the ways differentially-utilized group process are used in each stage of the work with domestic violence offenders. Based on group participants' narration of their treatment experiences, it discusses curative factors of group treatment, positive impact of group interaction on participants, and the language of sharing versus the language of help.
