The One and the Many: Relational Approaches to Group Psychotherapy applies advances in relational psychoanalysis to the theory and practice of group psychotherapy. In this volume Robert Grossmark and Fred Wright bring together leading writers in the group psychotherapy field, both psychoanalysts and group therapists, who have integrated ideas from contemporary relational psychoanalysis. Together, they constitute a vibrant and dynamic new wave in group psychotherapy and psychoanalysis that challenge much accepted wisdom and practice in the field, including classic group psychotherapy ideas regarding the therapist’s role, the group-as-a-whole and unconscious processes in group. In this book, Grossmark and Wright show how the development of relational psychoanalysis has had a transformative impact on the field of psychoanalysis that has reverberated in the group psychotherapy world. The contributors illustrate how the broadening scope of the contemporary relational scene offers much that coheres with and amplifies the theory and practice of group treatment. The focus on dissociation, enactment, trauma, mutuality and intersubjectivity in the clinical setting, the foregrounding of sub-symbolic communication and implicit relational knowing, the registration of mutual containment and mutual regulation, all open new and exciting vistas for understanding the process and healing properties of group treatment. The One and The Many expands the theory and practice of group psychotherapy offering innovative and refreshing ways to understand group interaction and to formulate interventions in both large and small groups. This book will be of interest and practical help to all who practice group psychotherapy, group process, psychoanalysis and psychotherapy in general, including all mental health practitioners, psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, social workers, counsellors and pastoral counsellors.
In this era of rising health care costs, the economy of group therapy has sparked a renewed interest among mental health professionals. Beginning with a review of group therapy's roots in psychoanalysis, Group Therapy in Clinical Practice moves on to discuss how modern group therapy can be successfully employed in a variety of hospital and medical settings. It includes the needs of special populations such as adolescents, elderly patients, HIV-positive and AIDS patients, patients who abuse substances, and trauma patients. In Group Therapy in Clinical Practice, 38 experts explore how this treatment modality can be used to its greatest effect in today's clinical setting and in the decade ahead.
A practical guide to play therapy with children. This book covers aspects of treatment including the selection of appropriate patients, choice of toys, setting limits, and working with parents. The capabilities of group therapy to foster social interaction and psychological development are shown.
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.
In this definitive work, internationally renowned group therapist Dr. Louis Ormont sets down the techniques and innovations that give the group experience its unique therapeutic power. For fifty years, Dr. Ormont has been at the forefront of evolving group therapy into the well-honed instrument it is today. Over the years, he has trained countless therapists and written extensively for the profession. Here, for the first time, he synthesizes the central ideas of group therapy, including his own pioneering contributions, in a format useful for both the therapist and the lay person. In The Group Therapy Experience: From Theory to Practice, Dr. Ormont discusses techniques such as those of identifying people's problems, dealing with resistances, helping members confirm new identities, and termination itself. Dr. Ormont explains that it is the group itself and not the therapist that is the true instrument of cure. With the advent of this book, group therapy becomes truly a therapeutic instrument in its own right, rather than a mere enlargement or extension of individual therapy.
