Arguing that group psychotherapy is a particularly effective method of treatment for psychotic patients, Group Psychotherapy of the Psychoses draws together the world's leading exponents in a comprehensive exploration of theory and practice.

The contributors consider the development of the study of psychosis as well as the more recent advances in assessment, diagnosis and group treatment, covering such topics as:

conceptual schema and models of the psychoses
variations of group therapy approaches and their effectiveness
interpretations and interventions with clients
coping with countertransference, counteridentification and counterresistance
multimodal treatment and the importance of context
training and supervision
problems peculiar to groups
treatment in a therapeutic community.
