Abstract

Mentally ill clients spend a considerable amount of time in groups Understanding the dynamics of group process could provide clients with a greater sense of mastery over their own recovery. This study compared the development of self-esteem and psychological well-being in clients who participated in an experimental course on group process with those who did not participate in such a group. Results suggest that clients who were taught group process showed greater increases along these variables than did those who did not participate in the course. Implications for the importance of helping clients understand the process of group therapy are discussed. © 2001, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
