As a group therapist or a consultant, it is conceivable that you may have to develop new and innovative therapy groups. Therefore, you are developing a new 8-week therapy group of Women Empowerment Therapy Group. It has two parts.
The first is a narrative describing the type of group, your rationale, the population whom you plan to target, and a review of the relevant literature. The second part is in outline form and includes the weekly goals and topics for the group. Please refer to the guidelines listed below.

• Describe the population your therapy group will serve and any special considerations you need to take into account when working with this population
• Provide a rationale for why this population needs access to group therapy and the benefits group therapy may provide
• Explain any ethical and legal considerations that might come into play when working with this population
• Provide a literature review of the therapy group you selected containing a minimum of 14 peer-reviewed journal articles
• This narrative must be in APA format with appropriate references to the literature
