✽ CSL 2058 - Group Counseling Skills

1.5 Credits
Prerequisites: CSL 2068  with a grade of C- or higher.
Group treatment is a powerful tool in delivering addiction treatment services. Groups have many therapeutic elements and effects that draw people into the culture of recovery. Groups provide useful information, allow one or two technicians, depending on group size, to facilitate the group process which helps a number of clients simultaneously, and provides positive peer support for recovery. This class will help students to understand the use of group therapy in the addiction treatment field and be able to demonstrate the skills necessary to facilitate a treatment group. This class will focus on the group process and will discuss diversity within groups as well as the many challenges a group leader may face. This class will also present models of effective group practice. This class also seeks to enhance the ability of students to offer treatment services in a manner that respects gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cultural, familial, systemic and socioeconomic diversity.
