This innovative book describes the original essence particular to the human species and details the steps necessary to help re-establish this essence, in cases when it has deteriorated, in a therapeutic group context of solidarity and closeness.

Disappointment in primary relationships particularly triggers the deterioration of self-offering, an initially expansive and trusting disposition to affectivity and love. People suffer when, like any fragile and delicate living being early in life, they fail to evolve according to the nature of their species. Therapeutic work is therefore described as mainly oriented to reactivate in a group, a new welcoming family, the original natural drives with new permissions, new trials and new joyful experiences. The book contains the methods and techniques routinely used by the author and two case studies, faithfully transcribed and commented on, particularly for the reactivation of the affective drive.

Revitalization Through Transactional Analysis Group Treatment is an insightful addition to the literature for transactional analysts in practice and in training, for professionals interested in the theory and practice of transactional analysis. Piccinino writes in a compelling manner allowing for the content to be accessible to anyone seeking to understand human processes and wellbeing.
