Bedeutsame interpersonelle Ereignisse — Der Hauptansatz für therapeutischen Effekt in der Gruppenpsychotherapie

  • K. Roy MacKenzie


Interpersonelles Lernen durch die Beziehungserfahrungen im Rahmen des gruppentherapeutischen Prozesses ist der Basisansatz der Gruppenpsychotherapie schlechthin (Rutan u. Stone 1984; Yalom 1985; Kaul u. Bednar 1986; Horowitz und Vitkus 1986). Man kann dies durchaus als analog zur Einzelpsychotherapie sehen, wo der korrigierenden emotionalen Erfahrung (Alexander et al. 1946) eine ähnlich zentrale Bedeutung für den therapeutischen Ansatz beigemessen wird. Die gruppentherapeutische Situation differiert insofern von der einzeltherapeutischen, als eine ganze Reihe von Beziehungsmöglichkeiten in der Gruppe gegeben ist.
