Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This nuts?and?bolts training manual focuses on what a relatively new group psychotherapist actually needs to do. Practical suggestions and numerous examples for all aspects of group psychotherapy are offered. The book covers the developmental phases of therapy and the clinician's role in conducting treatment, and provides concrete guidelines for handling inevitable challenges such as problematic patients, diminishing groups, excessive self?disclosure, and extra?group socializing. This training manual will be invaluable to mental health professionals, post?doctoral students, graduate students, psychiatric nurses, and marital and family counselors interested in learning about group psychotherapy.

Book News Annotation:

Seven contributions address the practical details involved in conducting group therapy, covering such topics as patient selection, developing structure, the therapist's role, and dealing with difficult patients and challenging situations. Intended for students as well as practicing psychotherapists and other mental health professionals.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Filling a significant gap in the clinical literature, this unusually practical manual addresses the nuts-and-bolts issues involved in conducting group therapy. Featuring contributions from leading experts in the field, the volume covers everything from determining which patients will benefit from a group experience to step-by-step instructions for running group sessions as effectively as possible. A hands-on manual, the volume is also an ideal companion to a basic text on group psychotherapy.

Organized in a unique, logical sequence, the chapters begin with an explanation of how to select patients for a particular group intervention and how groups are composed. The different stages of group interaction over time are then covered in detail, as are the changing aspects of the therapist's role during the various stages. Setting forth basic principles of group technique--including the management of resistance, transference, primitive group dynamics, and countertransference--a clear distinction is drawn between the roles of therapists conducting group treatment and therapists working in other treatment modalities.
