Summary
"This book applies attachment theory to group therapy, explaining how group therapists can work effectively with members who have different attachment histories and current interpersonal strategies. Indeed, an understanding of attachment theory will help group therapists even before the first session of therapy. Screening potential group members, determining who is appropriate for group therapy, and preparing new members before they begin group therapy are critical to successful outcomes. Some individuals are more at risk of dropping out of the group, are inclined to be a scapegoat in the group, struggle to remain engaged in the group process, and avoid emotional intimacy. This book explains why such individuals may have these problems, how to screen for them, whether to assign them to group therapy, and if they are assigned to group therapy, how to prepare them beforehand to maximize the likelihood of a successful outcome. The book also provides group leaders with a structure for ameliorating these problems in group sessions. Because attachment theory is relevant to a wide variety of presenting problems, this book will appeal to all group therapists. It explains how the leader can facilitate emotional regulation and changes in maladaptive beliefs for those members who struggle with insecure attachment"--Introduction.
