Contraindica Tions

A concern and possible contraindication, for group leaders and educators, is that the personal process time will take over and that the identified focus of the group/class will be lost. This may not seem like a problem when it comes to a psychotherapy group, but in fact it is. The frame will be securely established by allowing opportunity for everyone, including the group leader, to check in and holding to the time frame. In educational environments the concern is that the curriculum material will not be addressed. In either context, the art and skill of the leader are crucial. Holding the boundaries, sticking to the content of this initial process for each meeting, reminding members of the limits when they seem to be going outside the boundaries, and attending to an artful and minimalist facilitation during the process and during the ending of this time in the group are important and central foci for the leader/facilitator. If a leader is not skilled in facilitating group process this is the most major contraindication for this intervention.
