Reviews and Endorsements

'This groundbreaking volume offers a number of creative contributions that integrate extensive group psychotherapy experience with cutting edge neuroscience. Writing on work with children, adults, and couples, all authors utilize the interdisciplinary perspective of interpersonal neurobiology to model the conscious and unconscious psychoneurobiological mechanisms that underlie the explicit and especially implicit change mechanisms embedded in group psychotherapy. This book will be of great value to our understanding of how effective emotionally-focused group work can act as a growth-facilitating environment for optimizing brain circuits in the ‘social’ ‘emotional’ right brain, the biological substrate of the human unconscious mind. It also serves as a theoretical source for the development of evidence-based, yet clinically sound group psychotherapy models.'
- Allan N. Schore, author of The Science of the Art of Psychotherapy and Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self

'This clearly and beautifully written collection of peer reviews and previously published articles concerning the interpersonal neurobiology of group psychotherapy and group process is essential reading. Interpersonal neurobiology is a source of a fuller understanding of people in groups, groups in people, and especially of the web of affiliations that structure communicational networks and the information carried through them. This is necessary for the development of our theory and clinical practice. Interpersonal neurobiology underpins the deeper study of the social unconscious, including the development of the social brain and its effects on people in relationships and vice versa.'
- Earl Hopper, Ph.D. psychoanalyst and group analyst, Editor of the New International Library of Group Analysis
