End of schools of psychotherapy? Applying synergistics to psychotherapy integration



The Endlessly Fascinating Complexity of Just Being Yourself: Remembering Barbara Cohn

International Journal of Group Psychotherapy

(2015) Barbara R. Cohn, Ph.D., ABPP, LFAGPA, our dear friend and colleague, died on August 7, 2014, after a long and untimely illness. It would be impossible to capture all of Barabara's many facets in a brief tribute, so we will focus on three: her theoretical writings, particularly about women in groups and about the usefulness of a systemic perspective; her contributions to organizations and her students; her contributions to organizations and her students; and her more recent reflections on being a senior therapist.
