For this assignment, you will need to watch the following four (4) Group Therapy Demonstration Video Clips, taken from the series Understanding Group Psychotherapy: Outpatients, with Dr. Irving Yalom (2006 Psychotherapy.net, LLC).There are four vignettes (two in each video). The videos will start from the beginning.It is recommended you watch the pre-session commentary but can then go to the right of the video screen, under Chapters, and select “First Group Session” and then Third Group Session. You can then just focus on viewing the specific sessions, however it is recommended that you view the pre/post session discussion for the vignettes.For the next two vignettes, select Fifth Group Session and Eighth Group Session as well if you wish to bypass the commentaries.Group Therapy with Outpatients, Vignettes 1 and 2 [length 1:117 and 17:11 minutes each] Starts 8;11 and 28:00Vignette #3 and 4 presents Understanding Group Therapy: Vol 1, Part 2. This covers Sessions 5 and 8 (vignettes 3 and 4) with commentary in between the two vignettes and after the 4th vignette. This video will open with the fifth session (vignette 3). To view the eighth session (vignette 4) , go to “Chapters”, then click Eighth Session. It is recommended that you view the pre/post session commentary for each video to gain insight into the co-leaders’ theory and philosophy of group therapy.Group Therapy with Outpatients, Part 2, Vignettes 3 and 4 length [16:57 and 18:11 minutes each]As you watch the videos, consider that the problems presented and addressed commonly apply to groups struggling with substance use disorders or related recovery issues. Once you have viewed all four vignettes, submit a New Post and address the following:Identify at least 3 specific group interventions/strategies used by Dr. Yalom and his co-leader. (Note: that group interventions are not exactly the same as those used in individual counseling). How could these group therapy interventions/strategies be applied to a group where members are being treated for an addiction disorder or substance use disorder? Assuming a group of people with addiction/substance use disorders, what modifications would you suggest for the group rules/expectations? How would you address group task and group maintenance issues? How you would open and close each session?
