Reviews and Endorsements:

"Since the publication of the first edition, this wonderful book has been the most valuable single volume on psychodynamic group therapy. Our culture has changed at a staggering rate; the fifth edition takes into account the impact of social media, public policy, and neuroscience research, bringing the field up to the moment. This book belongs in the library of every therapist, from beginning student to seasoned clinician."--Hillel I. Swiller, MD, Director, Division of Psychotherapy, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

"Very informative for the beginning group therapist. The book was especially helpful because of its broad-based approach--with a number of theoretical perspectives considered to further the understanding and integration necessary in exploratory therapy. The eclectic stance was a change from other models of exploratory group therapy frequently taught in training programs. I would recommend this book to any psychiatry resident interested in becoming a group therapist."--Psychiatry: Interpersonal and Biological Processes (on the fourth edition)

— Psychiatry: Interpersonal and Biological Processes, January 2014

"The writing is clear and clean....That this excellence is maintained throughout a book by three different authors is a tribute to the quality of the collaboration. Difficult concepts are explained well and in depth, but without oversimplification. Clinical examples are used copiously throughout and invariably richly illustrate the point under discussion....A particular strength (and remarkable achievement) of the book is that it offers something for everyone, from the novice to the highly experienced....An essential part of the library of every group psychotherapist."--International Journal of Group Psychotherapy (on the fourth edition)

— International Journal of Group Psychotherapy, July 2008

"Presents a cohesive theoretical framework for the practice of group psychotherapy from a psychodynamic framework....The authors have succeeded nicely in unifying a complicated field without resorting to oversimplification....Fills an important niche and is unique in many ways. Without sacrificing intellectual clarity, it unifies and organizes the theory that underlies psychodynamic group psychotherapy....I highly recommend it."--Doody's Reviews (on the second edition)

— Doody's Review Service, January 2014

"[The authors] have drawn from their vast experience to put together what is probably the best available book on psychodynamic group psychotherapy….The book should continue to be widely used as a basic text for teaching psychodynamic group psychotherapy."--Psychiatric Services (on the second edition)
