This group meets every Wednesday from 5:30pm to 6:45pm in San Anselmo, California. Jennifer Rice is a licensed psychologist and she helps young teens and adolescents develop coping skills for anxiety, depression, and social related issues. The cost for each session is roughly fifty to sixty dollars, which because it is not covered by our insurance could cause eventually cause my family and me financial burden (Rice & Sussex Directories Inc., 2017).
The purpose of the group is to provide support to women who’ve had an abortion in the past.

The objective is to provide social supports for these women but also give them tools on how to cope with their decision. The group’s main goal is to be a safe place where women experiencing any type of post-traumatic stress or negative aftermath can express how they feel and what they’ve been through.
Self- help meetings can be used for a variety of reasons or addictions, from Alcoholics, Narcotics, over eaters, cancer support, and many other things. These meetings, while the reasons that people are in them might be different all have the fact that people are there for help or support in common. This paper will discuss the therapeutic alliance of AA, the therapeutic factors, and pros/ cons of AA in terms of counseling therapy.

= There are many forms of treatment for psychological disorders. One of the main ones happens to be therapy. There are multiple forms of therapies, the top two being individual and group therapy. In my defense, group therapy is the best one. Group therapy allows for individuals to share experiences that allows other individuals to relate and learn from one another because they share the same disorder. Group therapy also allows one to receive feedback that is not bias from family and therapist whose job it is to help you based of books and learning they have encountered over the years. However, individual therapy can hold some perks to it. Individual therapy can offer full attention to one patient in the one on one between the client and therapist.
Banking-related transactions that typically take long span of processing can now be done in just a few minutes, or even seconds. Aside from this, there are still other brilliant benefits that the IT has contributed to the finance sector, which may bring not only advantages but also possible drawbacks.
It is crucial for school counselors to be able to measure growth in students who participate in the group counseling. Therefore, students were given a pre-evaluation (see Appendix O) to establish their thoughts, feelings, and views on how they perceive themselves, and how they related themselves in area of self-esteem. After completion of the sessions, the students were administered a post-evaluation (see Appendix P). This valuable information helped see potential growth in students after completing the group counseling sessions.
If I were to start a support group it would be for people who have lost a loved one to the military. As discussed above I have personal experience in dealing with this. When having the group meeting an example of a metaphor I would use when speaking to the group in order to get them to open up and foster conversation comes from Sarah Brabant’s “Metaphors as Tools in Clinical Sociology” is “loss is a tear in piece of fabric” (Brabant 81) This leads to the persons current status as being a torn fabric and through time and work it can be mended and you can move past the grief you feel for the lost. In addition to sharing their own narratives and to encourage more people to share their own I would find and share narratives from both family members,
Counseling groups have the abilities to experience change, growth, confrontation, and acceptance in a completely different way than individual counseling. With the compilation of several different worldviews, life experiences, and situations, the group offers a powerful setting for exploration and knowledge, as well as support and learning opportunities. However, it is impossible to create a perfect group, and the consistent search for the ideal group could limit powerful interactions. Kealy, Ogrodnicuzk , Piper, and Sierra-Hernandez (2016) discussed the need to take “calculated risks in developing lively and productive groups,” (p. 313). They also discussed the caveat of excluding individuals who may add
Healing from substance use disorder is found in connecting and sharing empathetically with others who share the problem. For this reason, group therapy (GT) has emerged as a standard method of treatment as those who suffer from this disorder find solace in the company of peers and, under the guidance of a competent facilitator, become inspired to seek a solution in common with them. Substance use counselors can expect to participate in GT as a matter of course, so must understand the nuances involved in facilitating both open and closed groups. This paper will define open and closed therapy groups, explain the major differences between them, and compare their respective advantages and disadvantages in certain treatment environments.
The conclusion on the report of support group’s effectiveness was very interesting to research. There were different methods used to examine the effectiveness of stages of change in organizations such as Alcohol Anonymous, Al-Anon and 12-Steps groups. What I received from the two meeting I attended say that the programs is not positively effective for instance the woman that celebrated her sixteen anniversary at the Al-Anon meeting seen to be very bitter and unhappy. Even though her husband is no longer in her life, she harbors a lot of anger and she constantly relives her husband drinking problem, when she shares her story over and over again. Next, the observation in the Alcohol Anonymous meeting is similar to Al-Anon; they both have
Group therapy is an effective form of treatment that brings maladaptive interpersonal patterns into the open and allows new behaviors to be attempted in a safe environment (Yalom & Leszcz, 2005, p. xv). In its initial stage, a group is concerned with orientation, developing group norms, and exploring members’ expectations, anxieties, and insecurities about being accepted (Corey, Corey, & Corey, 2014, p. 145). The current group has one stated purpose: “Make yourself known, and get to know others” (Blake, 2016). In this paper, I reflect on my experience as a group member, my impressions of the leader’s style, and my personal and leadership goals for the class.

The change and advancement in technology are a significant factor in the banking business. Technology has led to tremendous improvements in this industry. Since the commencement of this millennium, people have shown great love for their mobile phones (Ozaki 1992). It necessitated the invention of mobile applications (APPs). From the introduction of the mobile banking, APP people rarely go to the banks. All their transactions get done simply by the stroke of a finger. Businesses face a challenge of adapting to changes in the technology sector. Mobile banking either through actual investing or any other means is on the rise.
Technological advancement has had a gigantic effect in the banking industry. Over the past few decades, the financial services industry has changed considerably with banking transforming from the pen and paper method to the computers and internet method. The pen and paper method took weeks or even months for the transaction to be eventually completed, and then the dramatic introduction of the computer and internet method which changed that time frame to only a matter of seconds to be completed, which reduced the amount of time and labor needed to complete a transaction significantly. Banking is considered one of the most important economic sectors with it being severely influential and responsive to any little change, whether it is domestic or international. Some extreme changes that were brought about by the development of this new technology turned into a globalized nature for the financial services industry. One stroke of a key on a computer could and would change a person 's life extensively or even have a global impact. The new technologies that were created and introduced changed how the consumers managed their money from that time on. Technology has helped to protect peoples’ hard earned money and make it much more impossible for people to be able to write out bad checks or even holding up a bank. The advancement in technology however, also came with some security risks as most things do, that could affect the money that people trusted with the bank and
