Systems-Centered Therapy (SCT) is an innovative approach to psychotherapy that synthesizes a finely-tuned awareness of the defensive roles of anxiety and depression, with an analysis of the phases of group development. This volume introduces the author's theory of living human systems and explicitly maps out its use in a structured treatment model applicable to work with any population.

In rich conceptual detail, the volume presents SCT as a powerful modality that enables clients to safely "sit on the edge of the unknown" and transform their ways of relating to themselves and each other. It will be received with interest by all practitioners and trainees in group and individual psychotherapy.

Reviews and Endorsements

'[Dr Agazarian] has produced a volume that is comprehensive, detailed, and filled with delicious controversy. Systems-Centered Therapy for Groups is a major contribution to the theory of group treatment, and takes its place among the giants in the field.'
- Anne Alonso, Ph.D.

'This absorbing book systematically unfolds Yvonne Agazarian's own form of Systems-Centered Therapy. Her method is an impressive integration of Lewin's field theory, "group-as-a-whole" methodology, and developmental dynamics. The whole amounts to a new and comprehensive system of psychotherapy that repays careful reading. Agazarian's hallmark is a deep understanding of human developmental potential that has been blocked by defences against mental pain and that can be released in psychotherapy.'
- Malcolm Pines, M.D., FRCP, FRCPsych

'An innovative and comprehensive addition to the field of group therapy.'
- Walter N. Stone, M.D.
