"In this training video, UK-based mindfulness experts Tim Leighton and Devin Ashwood demonstrate key components of interpersonal group therapy with clients struggling with addictions. Based on the idea that relationships are undermined by addictive behavior, this model of recovery helps members gain interpersonal skills in real time. You'll see these theories in action, as members gradually deepen their capacity to share their stories, give and receive empathy, and navigate rifts in a recovery group therapy setting. By watching this video, you will learn about the theoretical underpinnings of interpersonal group therapy, and how they apply to clients in recovery; understand how to lead a group through an experiential process while supporting client autonomy; and gain tools for working with client resistance and challenging feedback. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health and educational professions." - Supplied by publisher.
