Aspects of Similarity and Difference in Levels of Group Treatment of Adults in Social Agency Settings

By Leslie Rosenthal

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1961

The 1950s saw a burgeoning growth of group therapies used in place of or in conjunction with one-on-one therapy. Group therapies of the early 1960s began to explore the range of therapeutic possibilities, from group 'counseling', which focused on daily problems and situational conflicts, to group 'psychotherapy', which focused on uncovering repressed traumas that impact present behavior. Within all these therapies, members of the group tend to relate to one another as family members, and their interactions with their own families are highlighted and able to be examined in the context of this new family of peers. While not every person is fit for group therapy, this technique holds much promise in the field of family counseling.
