The present study is a review of 672 participants who joined a cognitive-behavioral group therapy program in the community. In addition to the overall positive outcome, the researcher goes further to investigate two negative outcomes of the program as well as their predictors. The absence of using individual counseling and social worker's scoring of low energy were identified as predictors of dropout. Some cognitive and interpersonal pretreatment symptoms are found to be poor treatment outcome. Implications to social work practice and research are discussed.
