Group Therapy Session Outline Template

Video & audio overview of the worksheet

What is the theory behind the template?

Group therapy is a specific therapeutic medium where multiple individuals facing similar challenges are placed together for an intervention. This may be a once-off group or it could involve multiple sessions with the same group.

Any group therapy intervention requires clear planning. This planning will enable the therapist to facilitate the group process confidently and contain the individuals as they move through the activity. A clear plan will also support good time management.

How will the template help?

This template will help a therapist structure a group therapy session and keep a record of what they have completed. The template offers an area for notes and reflections to help a therapist develop the plan for future use.

This template will add to other beneficial templates for group therapy such as group consent and informed consent agreements.

How to use the template?

As a therapist, you can use the template to plan out each of your different group sessions. This is helpful to ensure there is a plan for your progress notes and to help you optimally manage the session.

Feel free to adjust the template to your own specifications.
