Reviews and Endorsements

'This book contains the first attempt to give a comprehensive account for the lay reader of the principles and methods of Group Psychotherapy - i.e. the treatment in groups of individuals suffering from indispositions of the mind. Nowadays, the principles of individual psychotherapy, or psychoanalysis and related methods, are matters of fairly general knowledge. Information concerning group psychotherapy is scattered among papers in journals and books not easily accessible to, nor written for, the general reader.

'Dr. Foulkes and Dr. Anthony have collaborated not only to outline the relevant theory, but also to illuminate the subject with realistic case material. Naturally they have presented the subject from their own point of view, and even if this is distinctive, it is representative of important trends in therapeutic theory and practice. The basic ideas are in fact extremely simple and not a matter for dispute among the major psychotherapeutic schools.'
- C. A. Mace from the Editorial Foreword
