dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to explore with professionals the dynamics of group therapy and ways group therapy may be effective with children diagnosed with conduct disorder and families. Additionally, professionals were asked to provide feedback regarding elements of group work they felt were essential when developing a group for children diagnosed with conduct disorder, as well as the professional’s comfort level with providing various elements of intervention techniques to children diagnosed with this disorder. A mixed method study was utilized with a convenience sampling modality. A series of eight demographic questions; 24 Likert scale; and two open ended questions; were given to each of the 37 participants currently employed at River Oak Center for Children. The surveys were administered at the Elk Grove, Carmichael, and Sacramento All Staff meeting and team meetings during December, January, and February with permission of the management. Some of the themes that emerged included: differentiating roles for group leaders, running simultaneous groups for children and parents/caregivers, introducing psycho education curriculum, providing continual feedback throughout service delivery time, and developing emotional regulation skills. The research findings reflect the need for more availability of groups to more cost effectively and better serve the clients. en
