Conclusion And Contraindication

Insight and change of attitudes and behaviors are more likely to occur when the client is experiencing a personal problem in its entirety rather than its verbalized version. The participation of group members serves as a self-treatment to other members. During the role-play, members internalize prosocial values (e.g., gambling would harm the family) that would counteract their gambling habit. In regard to contraindications, be cautious: be sure not to let the falling chairs hurt the client or any group members.
