Overview

As managed care systems become the most important healthcare delivery models in the United States, they are revolutionizing the way that clinicians provide psychotherapy. Financial considerations and the size of client pools have an increasing expectation that group psychotherapy be the modality of first choice. In this new environment, clinicians must be thoroughly conversant in group therapy techniques to be effective providers.

Written by a leading expert on group therapy, Time-Managed Group Psychotherapy: Effective Clinical Applications provides new and experienced clinicians with generic models for the development of efficient and effective interactive groups able to deliver a wide variety of treatment options. It offers a comprehensive examination of the potential of group psychotherapy and an appreciation of time management in its utilization. Based on empirical research and illustrated with numerous examples, this text discusses a variety of treatment models that employ various combinations of supportive, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and psychodynamic techniques.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kelly E. Arduino, MA, LCPC (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book is a self-proclaimed follow-up to Introduction to Time-Limited Group Psychotherapy. This book presents the theory behind small groups, walks the reader through the process of implementing a "generic" therapeutic group, and closes with descriptions of specific clinical time-limited group therapy.
Purpose: The purpose is to restructure the concepts and practice of group psychotherapy to accommodate the changes in the healthcare industry and the abundance of clinical research that has become available during the past 8 years.
Audience: This book is appropriate for any clinician who services clients with limited mental health coverage or financial resources. Mental health practitioners in outpatient, inpatient, and group home settings servicing the severely disturbed to the situationally disturbed client would benefit from incorporating a program of group therapy.
Features: The table of contents adds considerably to the usefulness of this book. It provides clear descriptions of material included in a particular section for easy reference. Especially helpful is the author's application of the time-limited group therapy model to a number of specific clinical areas, such as eating disorders, personality problems, crisis interventions, etc. The author does not overburden the reader with references and complicated figures.
Assessment: This is a timely addition to the field of clinical practice. The concepts are presented clearly and concisely and, most importantly, they are well grounded with meaningful clinical applications. Agencies, libraries, and the classroom would benefit from the purchase of this book for use as a training tool or reference.
Journal of Psychotherapy Practice and Research
Time-Managed Group Psychotherapy is a worthwhile addition to the literature on group therapy in general and on time-limited group therapy in particular. It is comprehensive, theoretically consistent, and creative in it approach to financial limitations in health care delivery. It will be especially useful to those practitioners who wish to implement a group program. MacKenzie's blueprint offers a solid foundation.
