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.
