The use of group programs in managed care is growing, in part because they provide a cost-efficient method for effective psychotherapy. The mental health practitioner needs to understand how groups can best be developed and conducted. Effective Use of Group Therapy in Managed Care provides a solid understanding of how group programs work.

Group therapy is well suited for service systems such as HMOs, PPOs, mental health centers, and hospitals. The ten contributors of this book, all well known in the group psychotherapy community, have developed innovative ways of meeting service demands. Effective Use of Group Therapy in Managed Care provides an orientation to group programs and their development, and offers a range of models for specific types of groups.
