Overview

Group therapy can help resolve the roadblocks to emotional intimacy. Group leaders who want to master the techniques of group psychotherapy must have a clear theoretical understanding of the nature of interpersonal change in analytic treatment and the leader's role in facilitating it. This can only come from many years of both experience as a treatment group member and participation in training groups. There is no short-cut.
With 35 years of training, leading and teaching, Dr. Robert Pepper has designed a book, primarily for professional group therapists, that looks inside a powerful healing tool chest that includes gestalt, ego analytic, modern analytic, and psychodynamic therapies. With 100 short vignettes, he demonstrates the mastery of modern analytic techniques, such as bridging, mirroring, joining, out-crazying, focusing on minutiae, and confronting with original, supportive and protective techniques. Past, present and future group members, along with psychologically minded non-professional readers, may be intrigued by how the process works in this very interesting collection of interventions.
Dr. Pepper resides and works in the New York City area. More at www.drpepperphd.com
