Reviews and Endorsements

‘A superb collection of group analytic papers masterfully compiled and composed of nominations by members of the Institute of Group Analysis on the occasion of its 40th anniversary, this book spans works dating back to seminal writings of Foulkes to creative extensions and elaborations of theory and clinical practice by contemporary scholars. Through its linking of group analytic theory to other conceptual frameworks, such as psychoanalytic object relations, and by its applications to settings and situations beyond the small therapy group, this work has great value for all those wishing to further their understanding of depth group psychology.’
— Les R. Greene, PhD, President of the American Group Psychotherapy Association; Clinical faculty, Yale University Department of Psychiatry; APA Division 49 Group Psychologist of the Year

‘This book celebrates forty years of rich theoretical thinking and the developing practice of Group Analysis, from the early works of S. H. Foulkes through to contemporary applications which stretch beyond the clinical. The compelling papers contained in this volume will take the reader on a journey through the development of a theory that offers a unique understanding of the individual in the context of their group
and the society and world of which they form part, demonstrating a range of thinking as pertinent to the social scientist as it is to the clinician. A read as absorbing for experienced clinicians as it is for students or anyone wishing to develop an understanding of groups.’
—Marion C. Brown, Chair of the Institute of Group Analysis Board of Trustees

‘This compilation of inspiring foundational contributions in Group Analysis is likely to influence our theories and styles of clinical work in the twenty-first century. Jason Maratos and his colleagues have recorded how and why the Institute of Group Analysis in London has led the development of our discipline and its profession. I strongly recommend this book to all who are interested in the clinical and social approach of Group Analysis.’
—Dr Robi Friedman, President of the (International) Group Analytic Society
