Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy, The
Outline: The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy. Hailed by Jerome Frank as "the best book that exists on the subject, today and for the foreseeable future," Irvin D. Yalom's The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy has long been the standard text in its field. Indeed, in a survey reported in a recent issue of the American Journal of Psychiatry, it was cited as one of the ten most influential psychiatry publications of the decade, and it was one of the very few judged to be of "seminal or lasting value." Since the publication of the second edition in 1975, the practice of group psychotherapy has changed significantly. Now, in this completely revised and explanded third edition, Dr. Yalom presents the most recent developments in the field, drawing on nearly a decade of new research as well as on his own broad clinical wisdom and experience. A new chapter on the specialized therapy group - exemplified by the acute inpatient group - discusses the many groups that have emerged to deal with clinical syndromes and situations. New material is included on the preparation of patients, along with new sections on narcissistic and borderline disorders. Throughout, Dr. Yalom has updated the style and content of the chapters, while retaining valid research and clinical observations. Illustrating the text are vivid cases from nearly two thousand group sessions that he had led over the past decade. The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy is an informative text that is at once scholarly lively. This new edition is the most up-to-date, incisive, and comprehensive text on group therapy available today.
