About this book

Introduction

BASIC TEXTS IN COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY
Series Editor: Stephen Frosh
This is a new series on the fundamentals of counselling and therapy which will be essential reading for counsellors and psychotherapists both in training and in practice, as well as a wide range of professionals including nurses, social workers, teachers and doctors.

Building on the individual's personal experience of groups, starting in the family, the authors offer an account of why things happen as they do in groups. They provide a basis for developing groupwork in a wide range of settings, rooted in an understanding of the interaction between individual and group processes. Particular attention is paid in the group-analytic approach to the social, cultural and institutional context within and outside the group. This book can be used both as a text for courses and to lead the therapist or group worker through the stages of establishing and conducting a group appropriate to the needs of the particular clients, residents or patients.
