Three Generations of Lesbians: Clinical Implications and Placement in Group

Group: The Journal of the Eastern Psychotherapy Society

In this article, three generations of lesbian women are portrayed, highlighting variations in gender identity, intimate relationships, and connections with family-of-origin as relevant issues for clinicians. Suggestions for placement in therapy groups are made and limitations in the use of these profiles are described.

My life in six groups

Group: The Journal of the Eastern Psychotherapy Society

(2008) I have always been fascinated with groups. I cannot remember when I was not intrigued by their potential for sustenance and nurture but also for their destructive capacities, small and large. As a child growing up in the suburban Midwest, I experienced the joy and excitement of best friends and the sheer physical exhilaration and camaraderie of playing team sports.

Does the group mind if I eat my bagel now?


(2014). Group work presents the therapist with many situations, considerations, and ultimately, decisions that are unique to the practice of group psychotherapy. Complex Dilemmas in Group Therapy includes advice and insights from more than fifty of the most eminent group therapists in the world and is edited by two leading thinkers and practitioners in the field. In its pages clinicians will find expert guidance on some of the most difficult situations group therapists face, and they’ll come away from the book with a host of practical strategies for facilitating their work as well as a deeper and broader understanding of the overarching ideas that underpin the practice of successful group therapy.
