Some Issues in Administering Group Therapy in the Family-Focussed Setting

By Leonard Rohmer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1969

Group therapy at the end of the 1960s is experiencing growth in popularity among family agencies. The author's agency has been utilizing group therapy since 1957, and he shares lessons about transitioning to this relatively new field. For example, he suggests that the potential group therapist form a new group out of his own clients rather than bringing new clients into an experimental situation. Overall, the author is optimistic about the continued improvement of therapy techniques as sociology, behavioral science, systems theory, and communications theory advance the potentials of group treatment.
