With full respect for the constraints of the social unconscious, Earl Hopper applies his theory of Incohesion to the treatment of difficult patients in group analysis. The personification of aggregation and massification patients with crustacean, contact-shunning and amoeboid, merger-hungry characteristics respectively is illustrated with detailed clinical vignettes from heterogeneous groups, including drug addicts, victims of incest and sexual abuse, and child survivors of the Shoah.
