INTRODUCTION

“Groups 4 Health” is an evidenced-based, short-term psychological intervention developed by an Australian team of clinical and social psychologists. Stressing social connectedness as a means to improve mental health and general well-being, a one-day workshop organised on July 12, 2018, by the National Centre of Competence in Research LIVES in partnership with the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine, Lausanne, will make this intervention available to a Swiss public.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the end of this workshop you should have a good grounding in the theory and practice of Groups 4 Health. While addressing the theoretical underpinnings, the workshop will primarily focus on the content of the programme and its delivery. It will also explore ways it can be adapted to different populations and contexts.
