Reviews and Endorsements

"A must read for all group therapists and anyone working with groups. Building on decades of scholarship and experience, this book is a triumph in theory and practice. It provides a penetrating guide and practical insights with extraordinary clarity and unparalleled depth into understanding and working with all dimensions of group life." - Francis Kaklauskas, Psy.D., CGP, FAGPA, Naropa University, University of Colorado, & Saybrook University.

"Reading this book was a deeply personal experience for me: opening to their idea of "seeing one's role in context rather than taking it just personally" and its useful ramifications for all of us who work with individuals, couples, families, groups or organizations. Helpful for both journeyman and senior practitioners, this compelling book discusses their wide range of system ideas integrating contemporary neuroscience, social science, psychology, and medicine." - Joshua M. Gross, Ph.D., ABPP, CGP, FAGPA, FAAGP, Director of Group Programs, Florida State University.

"Yvonne never tired of trying to clarify and simplify her theory in order to make it as widely accessible as it deserves to be. Here is her final effort, aided and abetted by two of her closest collaborators. A great resource!" - Ken Eisold, Ph.D., President, The William Alanson White Institute.

"The authors have illustrated their work with creative images (perhaps inspired by Kurt Lewin's influence) so that theory comes alive and is a true pleasure to read. Their new concept of the "person-as-a-system" completes a Theory of Living Human Systems (TLHS) and widens its applications. Beyond the theory, this is a handbook which can be used by practitioners for many years to come." - Christer Sandahl, Professor of Social and Behavioural Sciences, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden. Past president of the International Association for Group Psychotherapy and Group Processes (IAGP).
