Abstract

What qualities does a group conductor need? What does this imply for a model of further development for those who want to continue their work in groups without becoming professionally qualified as a group analyst? The new group therapist is subject to particular pressures and must consider her personal and professional needs carefully. This book has shown how the personal characteristics of the group therapist form the basis for her capacity to work in groups. Monitoring and analysing her countertransference, will enable her to stay in role in the group. We outline some of the tools and contexts which facilitate professional development and give practical details about obtaining information on group training from an analytic perspective.
