Groups are rather like neglected foods that gained a bad reputation in the 1970’s and now, cooked well, are coming back into fashion.
It is hard to describe the special quality of this experience.
Meeting with thoughtful people genuinely interested in one another to exchange ideas and experiences is quite special. Years later people remember the experience with affection.
Imagine an intimate, relaxed, well functioning book group where, instead of reading a book, the dramas of their own lives receive quality therapeutic attention. Clearly this is down to me putting the right people together, which I do with great care.
‘Group Works!’ answers the reservations and questions you may have about Group Analysis. It is produced by the American Group Psychotherapy Association. Although I am English and practice in the UK I am an overseas member of the AGPA. You might like to read my guidelines for joining a group, which give an idea of the commitment people make.
As a senior psychotherapist I am expected to contribute to the training of new therapists. I have consented to be a Training Group Analyst, which means that my twice-weekly group is suitable for potential students looking to join a group for their own therapy, an essential part of becoming a therapist.
