Comment: Levels of Group Treatment in Social Agencies

By Sanford N. Sherman

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

Group treatment in social agencies is a multifaceted and ever-growing field. Each group therapy session is a unique expression of complex interactions among the participants, and attempting to simplify or reduce the scope of group therapy is a counter-productive way of examining the field. The author argues that group sessions should not be pre-judged or selectively populated based on personality, gender, family role, etc. Rather, each personĂ¢??s complexity should be embraced, and the group therapist should be able to guide group members through a variety of interactions in order to bring about the most fruitful results.
