Various obstacles can be encountered during group CBTp, either before the therapy, during the therapy, or even after the therapy. This chapter offers concrete examples of different obstacles that can be met as well as specific solutions for each obstacle. Some of these obstacles are setting-specific, such as lack of support from management or staff resistance to a new group, whereas some are more therapist-related (e.g., feeling incompetent, not getting along with the co-therapist). Regarding obstacles that are more client-related, we present a list of commonly encountered difficult or challenging participants in group CBT for psychosis and offer suggestions regarding how to best deal with them. This chapter essentially offers a plethora of solutions to common obstacles and challenges met when delivering group CBT for psychosis.
