Group Therapy: A Group Analytic Approach (2018) is an introduction to contemporary group analytic theory and practice. Often deemed as the most complex of all the psychological therapies, the book provides a concise introduction to the field. It is a theoretically rich offering which includes clinically vivid accounts of the theory and concepts and how these concepts may look in action. The intended audience includes qualified group analysts, students of group analysis and others who may be interested in or who may wish to explore and understand the field of group analytic psychotherapy. The introductory aim of the book is achieved as concepts are presented in a lucid manner starting with foundational group analytic theory and ending with clinical excerpts. It includes examples which remain true to and attest to the cumbersome task of a group analytic conductor as well as the power and peril of interconnectedness in group psychotherapy.
