Techniques in Group Therapy

By Oscar Sternbach

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1948

This piece reflects on Wilfred Hulseâ??s report on "Various Experiences in Group Psychotherapy" and S. R. Slavsonâ??s piece on "Group Therapy in Child Care and Child Guidance," both in this issue of the journal. The piece explains that Slavson's presentation illuminates how the Jewish Board of Guardians' four definite group-therapy methods are being employed, all of which are applied with an appreciable degree of certainty and skill. The piece asserts that Hulseâ??s paper is lucid and stimulating because Hulse attempts to crystallize, from quite a varied experimental experience of his own and of other workers, a number of practical general rules. The piece concludes by asserting that group therapy is a therapy in its own right and on the same level of individual therapy with the added benefit of wider applicability.
