Int J Group Psychother 2015 Oct;65(4):637-46

Group analyst and assistant professor at the Psychology Institute of the University of São Paulo. He is a former vice president of the Latin American Federation of Group Analytic Psychotherapy (FLAPAG).

Group Psychotherapy in Israel: History and Main Trends.

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Oct;65(4):606-16

Director of international programs at the Professional School of Psychology in Sacramento, California.

In Israel, the sense of belonging carries special meaning for historical and contemporary reasons. Since its establishment, Israel, with a background of centuries of persecution of the Jews, has been subjected to a consistent threat of war and terror that makes it a traumatized society. On the one hand, this intensifies social cohesiveness, especially in times of war. Read More

Group Psychotherapy in Canada.

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Oct;65(4):583-93

Department of Psychiatry at the University of British Columbia.

Canada is a relatively young country, spanning a vast geographical area; yet, it has matured quickly, becoming a diverse, prosperous, and proud nation. The development of group psychotherapy in this country has followed a similar path: its roots can be traced back to fairly recent times, but it has given rise to a rich fabric of practice, teaching, and research traditions. This article provides a brief synopsis of how group therapy is provided, taught, and studied in Canada. Read More

Group Psychotherapy in Finland.

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Oct;65(4):535-41

Psychotherapist, group psychoanalyst, supervisor, and trainer in Helsinki, Finland.

This article describes the development of group psychotherapy in Finland as a treatment in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Different theoretical preferences split the training programs into two; both are now trying to survive in a psychotherapeutically changing landscape. All training programs have been transferred to the universities, but a lack of interest in, and knowledge about, group psychotherapy has resulted in fewer students choosing this program. Read More

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Oct;65(4):490-500

Department of Social Psychology and Methodology of Behavioral Sciences at the University of Basque Country in San Sebastian, Spain.

(1) What is the history and the theoretical orientation of group therapy in Spain? (2) How is training organized? (3) What role does group psychotherapy play in the health system in Spain? (4) What is the relationship between group psychotherapy research and clinical practice in Spain? (5) What topics can be identified as unique to therapy groups in Spain? (6) How are group-related issues important within the social background of Spain? and (7) What does group work hold for the future? Although not even a century has passed since the birth of this discipline, there have already been many events associated with the management of power and knowledge, the development of a sense of community, and the evolution of the political and social life of our country. Group therapy training is still evolving and is properly supported and accredited by prestigious institutions. In the 2013 Symposium of the Spanish Society of Group Psychotherapy and Group Techniques (SEPTG), the need for joint group theories and techniques within the profession's activities was clearly highlighted.

Dynamic Relational Group Psychotherapy: A Neurobiologically Informed Model of Change.

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Jul 13:1-18. Epub 2015 Jul 13.

Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

In this article we introduce a preliminary, neurobiologically informed model of group therapy that links the timing and nature of specific group interventions with hypothesized changing neurobiological needs of the group. We suggest that the observed phases of group development reflect an underlying reorganization of neuronal circuitry that occurs as members progress through a hierarchically organized treatment, and that this reorganization involves the integration and homeostatic rebalancing of subcortical and neural networks. Our preliminary Dynamic Relational model suggests that an understanding of the neurobiological processes involved in group development may help inform and direct effective group-based psychotherapy interventions.

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Jul;65(3):445-58

Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and director of Behavioral Medicine Research at Women and Infants Hospital, Providence, Rhode Island.

This study examined, as a secondary analysis, whether a group interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) intervention focused on preventing postpartum depression by strengthening social support and building interpersonal skills during the transition to motherhood positively affected breastfeeding outcomes among low-income women. The intervention-Reach Out, Stand strong, Essentials for new mothers (ROSE)-taught participants the importance of self-care and assertive help seeking to be better able to sustain breastfeeding practices. Ninety-nine pregnant women were randomized to ROSE plus standard care or to standard care alone. Read More

The Effectiveness of Short- and Long-Term Psychodynamic Group Psychotherapy on Self-Concept: Three Years Follow-Up of a Randomized Clinical Trial.

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Jul;65(3):362-85

Institute of Clinical Medicine at the University of Oslo.

We compared differences in self-concept change across three years after short-(STG) and long-term (LTG) psychodynamic group psychotherapy, in a mixed sample of outpatients. Self-concept was assessed at baseline and three years later, using the Structural Analysis of Social Behavior Questionnaire. Vector scores Affiliation and Autonomy were primary, and the eight cluster scores-self-free, self-affirm, self-love, self-protect, self-control, self-blame, self-attack, and self-neglect-were secondary outcome measures.

A healing herd: benefits of a psychodynamic group approach in treating body-focused repetitive behaviors.

Authors:
Stacy Nakell

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Apr;65(2):295-306

Sole Practitioner with Lotus Therapy, Austin, Texas.

Body-focused repetitive behaviors, such as trichotillomania and skin-picking, are not well understood in clinical communities. Research and practice with a population exhibiting these behaviors have focused almost exclusively on the usefulness of cognitive-behavioral therapy in symptom reduction. The author specializes in treating patients with body-focused repetitive behaviors and suggests that a holistic, psychodynamic model of treatment for this population creates possibilities for deeper change.

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Apr;65(2):242-71

Professor of Psychiatry, Political Psychology, and International Affairs, and Director of the Political Psychology Program at the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University in Washington, DC.

There are no psychological characteristics or psychopathology that separates terrorists from the general population. Rather it is group dynamics, with a particular emphasis on collective identity that helps explain terrorist psychology. Just as there is a diverse spectrum of terrorisms, so too is there a spectrum of terrorist psychologies. Read More

Angry reactions can present unique challenges to the process of conducting group therapy, especially when providing group treatment to participants who have histories of angry or aggressive behavior. This article briefly reviews relevant literature and describes a group-based violence reduction training program (VRTP). The VRTP conceptualizes anger and aggression from a frustration-aggression framework and employs treatment derived from research in the area of social problem-solving. Read More

Effectiveness of skills for academic and social success (SASS) with Portuguese adolescents.

Social fears are common among adolescents and may considerably impair their lives. Even so, most adolescents do not seek professional help for these difficulties, making it important to promote evidence-based and preventive interventions in community samples. This research presents the effectiveness of an intervention with a group of five female adolescents who reported serious interference of their social fears in their daily life. Read More

There's always a villain to punish: group processes contributing to violence and its remediation.

Authors:
Nina K Thomas

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Jan;65(1):89-107

Clinical Associate Professor, Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, New York University.

This paper considers the widespread use of violent metaphors, such as "combat" and "war," to represent the current social, psychological, and political problems within the United States. I apply Lakoff and Johnson's (1980) thesis that metaphor shapes thought, policy, and behavior. I examine how use of such metaphors inclines the national consciousness toward violence and punishment for it. Read More

The dangerous role of silence in the relationship between trauma and violence: a group response.

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Jan;65(1):65-87

Adjunct Full Professor at Long Island University Post.

This article considers that somewhere in the space between violence and trauma is dangerous silence. Silence intensifies the impact of trauma, and trauma that goes unspoken, un-witnessed, and unclaimed too often "outs itself" as more violence to self or others. Relevant empirical evidence on the impact of civilian interpersonal violence, combat trauma, school shootings, bullying, and domestic violence confirms this tragic cycle. Read More

A group therapist reflects on violence in America.

Authors:

Int J Group Psychother 2015 Jan;65(1):41-62

Boston Institute for Psychotherapy and in private practice.

In this paper, the author draws on his experience as a group therapist, noting parallels between the often intense but well contained dynamics of therapy groups and what they can tell us about violence in America. He examines the tension between bearing and understanding feelings and the desire to act on them, sometimes destructively in therapy groups and in society. He notes the omnipresent desire to find scapegoats rather than bear our own discomforts and notes the same in the abuse through which those in power scapegoat those under their control. Read More
