Group Analysis is a form of psychotherapy by the group, of the group, including its conductor. Group analysis aims to achieve a healthier integration of the individual in his or her network of relationships. The focus is on the relationship between the individual and the group, thus placing emphasis on the essentially social nature of human experience.
“The method and theory of group analysis is concerned with a dynamic understanding of the inner working of the human mind as a social, multi-personal phenomenon” (Foulkes 1975) and as such can be applied to groups, individuals, couples, families and applied groups.
Clinical experience and research have shown that a majority of people in need of professional assistance can benefit greatly from certain forms of group psychotherapy known as “psychoanalytic group therapy,” “group psychoanalysis,” or “psychoanalysis in groups,” or “group analysis.”
