Reviews and Endorsements

'This excellent book provides impressive depth, and refreshing clarity of expression and thinking about psychoanalytic group psychotherapy, as well as insights about group life more broadly. The editor's profound conviction in the value of psychological work done by groups, her masterful use of psychoanalytic theory to understand group life, and the liveliness of the clinical examples (often of patients with severe difficulties) make it very pleasurable to read. A splendid section of the Manual on the group therapist's tasks outlines the principles of technique and will inspire future generations of group therapists. An outstanding volume, which I am delighted to recommend.'
- Margaret Rustin, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, London

'This book is unique in that it contains the first usable, lively and informative Treatment Manual for psychoanalytic group psychotherapy, bringing together a wealth of anecdotes and experience in an eminently user-friendly way. Anybody practising psychoanalytic group therapy would do well to immerse themselves in the volume as a whole. It creates a whole new opportunity for rejuvenating this field of work, containing chapters by an impressive body of experts, with many clear examples of Tavistock technique at its best.'
- Anton Obholzer, Psychoanalyst, Organisational Consultant, former Chief Executive Officer, Tavistock Centre, London
