Group work presents the therapist with many situations, considerations, and, ultimately, decisions that are unique to the practice of group psychotherapy. The second edition of Complex Dilemmas in Group Therapy includes advice and insights from more than fifty of the most eminent group therapists in the world and is edited by two leading thinkers and practitioners in the field. In its pages clinicians will find expert guidance on some of the most difficult situations group therapists face, and they’ll come away from the book with a host of practical strategies for facilitating their work as well as deeper and broader understanding of the overarching ideas that underpin the practice of successful group therapy.
