For your Final Project, you are to review the literature and develop a new 8-week therapy group of your choice. The Final Project has two parts. The first is a narrative describing the type of group, your rationale, the population whom you plan to target, and a review of the relevant literature. The second part is in outline form and includes the weekly goals and topics for the group. Please refer to the guidelines listed below.
