The Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) series fulfills the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) mission to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America’s communities by providing evidence-based and best practice guidance to clinicians, program administrators, and payers.
The primary audience for this TIP is substance treatment counselors; however, the TIP should be of interest to anyone who wants to learn more about group therapy. The intent of the TIP is to assist counselors in enhancing their therapeutic skills in regard to leading groups.
