Summary

This book contains eleven selected papers on difficult topics group therapists encounter in their work. Based on the author's forty years in the field, these papers include the topics of shame, courage, hostility, combined individual and group therapy, money, indirect communication, difficult patients, silence, and the missed session. Written from a psychodynamic orientation with a relational emphasis, they pay special attention to countertransference. An autobiographical introduction to each paper discusses what experiences have led the author to write on each topic. These introductions honor the role that personal experience has played in the evolution of Dr Gan's therapeutic presence.
