Contraindica Tion

Like any intervention there is always the possibility that there might be a contraindication. In this particular one, the contraindication would be in the form of an inexperienced clinician. It takes experience to know when to use it and when to just sit and let the group do its own work, but I do not think this one can be harmful. At worst, it could be overused or it could seem inappropriate or trite if used at the wrong time.
