Overview

In CRITICAL INCIDENTS IN GROUP THERAPY, authors Donigian and Hulse-Killacky create the segue between an individual approach to group therapy and a systemic one. In the first 13 chapters of Critical Incidents, the authors present and examine individual approaches to group therapy. It is then in Chapters 14 and 15 that the authors introduce the idea of systemic therapy. Building upon that foundation, SYSTEMIC GROUP THERAPY looks at the systemic nature of groups within the framework of General Systems Theory. This presentation of the interactive nature of systemic groups helps to demystify the group process. When combined with CRITICAL INCIDENTS IN GROUP THERAPY by Jerry Donigian and Diana Hulse-Killacky, students will be provided with the sum and substance for a course in group therapy/counseling. Not only are students offered the concepts they need to know, instructors will be stimulated to show how these group concepts can be brought to life in their classes.
