The therapist has a very different role in group therapy than in individual therapy—these differences are presented in this chapter. This chapter presents how to work in co-therapy, how to use the participants’ input to support the therapist, and what is expected of the therapist (e.g., show and ensure understanding, manage time and interactions, encourage group cohesion). The chapter also offers a detailed list of ‘to-do’ (e.g. protecting self-esteem, offer structure) and ‘do not’ (e.g., imposing his/her view, acting as an expert, monopolizing the session) that therapists need to keep in mind when offering gropu CBT for psychosis.
