Starting and Sustaining Groups that Thrive: Workbook and Planning Guides
Whenever I teach this material in workshops, participants ask for copies of the forms and worksheets I have developed. This handy book includes templates that can be modified based on your particular needs. Practical tools include:
- Group/Life history Forms
- Sample Group Agreements
- Termination Agreements for Groups
My screening and preparation system for establishing therapy groups is collaborative in nature. Clients and I use the forms and worksheets I developed. When screening potential group members, we decide whether they are likely to both benefit from and contribute to the group. New group members feel more connected and the groups have significantly less turnover.

I am putting the finishing touches on this inspirational self-help book for individuals who have chronic illness. The book also addresses the needs of their loved ones and health care professionals. The material draws on my personal experiences dealing with "medical messes." I offer techniques that have helped clients and doctors deal with the challenges of chronic medical problems. Woven into the chapters are stories and practical tools developed with clients over my 28 years as a psychotherapist.
