In parallel, he speaks about group dynamics and how groups form and develop. Mario incorporates the Therapeutic Spiral Model (TSM) clinical approach including the clinical map, Trauma Survivors Internal Role Atom (TSIRA). He also describes how the TSM prescriptive roles provide a useful map for developmental, informed work with adolescents.
