• accepts limitations of self and partner
• brings out best qualities of both partners
• does not crave unconditional love
• finds commitment acceptable
• accepts endings
• experiences openness to change and exploration
• enjoys solitude
• develops outside friendships and support systems
• expresses feelings spontaneously
• invites growth in the other
• welcomes closeness
• risks vulnerability
• feels free to ask honestly for what is wanted
• cares with detachment
• experiences giving and receiving in the same way
• affirms equality of self and partner

Dysfunctional Families 22
Session VIII: Personal Action Plan & Group Closure
Goal: To help participants define a problem they would like to focus on for the near
future, and to develop personal action plans for generating approaches and strategies
for resolving the problem. To review key concepts and experiences of the group as a
means of bringing the sessions to a close.
1. Lecture on Defining Personal Problems (30 minutes)
(Handouts: "Problem-Solving Materials" by Nieves
& "Potential Problem Areas")*
2. Sharpening Each Member's Personal Problem (30 minutes)
3. Strategies & Tools for Problem Solving (30 minutes)
4. Recapping of the Group (10 minutes)
5. Material for Future Reading (10 minutes)
(Handouts: Brochure on "Self Help: Guidelines for Personal Growth" available
from the University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center &
"Adult Children of Dysfunctional Families: Annotated Bibliography")
6. Group Evaluation (10 minutes)
(Handout: Evaluation Form)
Annotated Outline
1. Lecture on Defining Personal Problems: Handouts are first distributed
on "Personal Problem Solving" by L Nieves (See attached copy.) These materials
are intended to help people further define the problem they want to focus on by using
cognitive behavior therapy principles. The main purpose of the "Personal Problem
Solving" handout is to illustrate the "who, what, when, where, how, and how often" of
the problem. The examples provided in the handout are discussed, along with taking
a group member's problem and filling in the flow chart as further illustration of the
process.
Once this first part of the handout is discussed, the second part is introduced focusing
on potential problem areas. This scheme is based on the work of Arnold Lazarus's
BASIC ID as presented in his book, Multimodat Behavior Therapy. It is a way of
beginning to develop specific treatment or counseling techniques which will address
various sub-dimensions of the problem. Once again, a group member's particular
problem could be used as an illustration or a hypothetical one could be presented.
Dysfunctional Families 23
The important point would be to break down the problem into the various component
parts of the BASIC ID format, while also presenting strategies for resolving each part.
(N.B. For the purposes of this group, we have added an eighth category to the
handouts, "Spirituality/Existential," to account for existential and religious concerns.)
2. Sharpening Each Member's Personal Problem: Time is allotted for
each group member to apply the handout material to his or her own problem.
Individual coaching or assistance is provided as needed by each member. Members
are encouraged to use these materials for problem-solving into the future.
3. Strategies and Tools for Problem Solving: Once each member's
problem has been sufficiently focused, the BASIC ID format is applied so that specific
approaches, strategies, solutions, etc. can be applied. Again, individual coaching and
assistance is provided, along with creative generation of strategies by the group as a
whole.
4. Recapping the Group: As a means of closing the group, the group leaders
should review the main conceptual points of the group (i.e., Erikson's developmental
stages) with special focus on trust vs. mistrust as the key issue for survivors of
dysfunctional families. Any special disclosures or significant emotional catharsis by
specific group members would also be important to recall and validate. Group leaders
should share their own personal reactions to the group and invite group members to to
the same.
5. Material for Future Reading: Copies of the brochure, "Self Help:
Guidelines for Personal Growth." (available from the University of Texas Counseling
and Mental Health Center) and an annotated bibliography, "Adult Children of
Dysfunctional Families," are distributed as resources for continued reading and
exploration.
6. Group Evaluation: Group members are asked to fill out an evaluation form
which asks for feedback about the group and the leaders. Once this form is
completed, the members are free to leave. At this point, the group is officially ended.

*LeShan, L. (1986, first published, 1974). How to meditate. New York:

population at large.

Disorder as a characteristic of Adult Children.

Human Communications.
A "classic" in this very young field. This is the book which has made ACOA such a popular
concept.
