CORRECT Groups: Collaborative Resources for Research on Counselling and Therapy Groups

Group therapy has become a widely used form of non-pharmacological treatment of mental illness. Despite the widespread use of group therapy in BC and elsewhere, research on the complexities of efficient and effective application of group therapy has been limited and fragmentary. This award supports the establishment of a multidisciplinary team of researchers to focus on developing a better, more integrated understanding of group therapy as a mental health intervention. The team’s research could have a significant impact on patient management and help clarify how group therapy services should be supported.
