I have used Psychodynamic Group Psychotherapy in teaching and find it to be a valuable resource to help graduate-level trainees gain a good grasp of group dynamics. Nuanced and yet succinct, the book elucidates the fundamentals of group functioning and equips the future practitioner to create an environment in which group members can connect with others in healing and meaningful ways.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy or psychoanalytic psychotherapy is a form of depth psychology, the primary focus of which is to reveal the unconscious content of a client's psyche in an effort to alleviate psychic tension.
This is a lively, pragmatic book that nonetheless does not sacrifice the theoretical and historical depth of the prior work. It is a book for both the beginner and the expert, one that is user friendly, wise, and scholarly, and that draws on decades of expertise. I can hardly wait to recommend this book to my psychiatry residents, psychology interns, and their supervisors.
