Description: Introducing FAP encourages clients to consider how in-group behaviors are directly related to their current pain, and how awareness of these behaviors can evoke multiple opportunities for growth and change. FAP enhanced assignments maximize group cohesion and encourage in-group improvements. This presentation offers clinicians ways to flexibly implement FAP into current groups, set up groups with in-session targets in mind, and pre-screen clients to get them on board with group treatment. Group leaders will also be encouraged to consider what their groups need, what it will take to get them there, and what options need to be created to encourage growth and clinical improvements.
