Although group psychotherapy is a long-established and popular mode of treatment, the basic reasons for its effectiveness remain ill-understood. This book offers a clear and coherent account of the knowledge that has accumulated on how group therapy works, and which particular elements of the process are responsible for its success. The authors have assembled the clinical lore, theoretical advances, and the empirical research available for each of the ten therapeutic factors that make up their classification. They also highlight the implications of this knowledge for general practice. Readership: psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, clinical psychologists, social psychologists, social workers.
