The knowledge, skills and attributes of facilitators of psychotherapeutic groups for children.

by Olckers, Patonia Geraldine

Abstract (Summary)
Because children have different needs and function differently from adults, special training for leaders of children's groups is required. Child group psychotherapy is a unique treatment modality and it requires specific facilitation skills. The primary objective of child group psychotherapy is to improve the child's immediate adaptation to his or her life situation, build ego strength and teach problem-solving skills. The aim of the study was to explore the knowledge, skills and attributes of facilitators of psychotherapeutic groups for children.
