A Well-being Group for Adolescents in An Acute Psychiatric Setting

Jeffrey S Emmerichs, Heidi Kofford


This article describes the use of a wen-being group as a valuable tool in treating adolescent
psychiatric patients and why this approach is appropriate in this setting. We
review the structure and method of presentation of the well-being group, in which
participants have the opportunity to examine various aspects of their lifestyle in relation
to wellness dimensions, including the positive and negative effects of lifestyle
behaviors and their consequences, while indicating what alternatives exist. We conclude
with a discussion of the responses of participants involved in the group.
