"The relational turn and group psychotherapy-once you say it out loud it seems so obvious that you wonder why there has not always already been such an integration! The underlying principles of a 'relational' or social unconscious,' intersubjectivity, 'the third' provide the theoretical scaffolding for synthesis, or at the very least engaged dialogue and mutual learning. With the publication of this book, Grossmark and Wright take the lead in bringing together cutting-edge theorists and clinicians who 'stand in the spaces'-'building bridges'-between individual relational and group psychotherapy. Relational psychoanalysis provides particularly fertile ground for systematic and thoughtful psychotherapy integration, and this book will invigorate the movement toward such clinical creativity."-Lewis Aron, PhD, Director, New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis

"This book is much needed in the contemporary group psychotherapy field. It breaks new theoretical ground, approaching group psychotherapy from the many perspectives that come together under the relational umbrella. With abundant clinical examples, it is an integrative, evocative, and very helpful volume for all who practice or have an interest in group psychotherapy."-Jeffrey Kleinberg, PhD, Fellow and Former President of the American Group Psychotherapy Association, and Professor Emeritus, LaGuardia Community College, City University of New York

"It is at the very heart of the revolution in psychoanalytic thought that is relational theory that human beings must be understood in the context of the web of relationships that frames their lives.Yet relational practice has been very largely confined to work with individuals and to the context of the two-person relationship in the consulting room. This book represents an important extension of relational thinking, both in theory and in practice, and should be read widely by anyone interested in how people live in the wider contexts that characterize so much of our lives."-Paul L. Wachtel, PhD, Distinguished Professor, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology at City College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, Co-founder of the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration, abdauthor of Therapeutic Communication and Relational Theory and the Practice of Psychotherapy

"This book is essential reading for anyone interested in group psychotherapy, and for anyone interested in the application and expansion of relational theory to the practice of group therapy."-J. Scott Rutan, PhD, Past President and Distinguished Fellow of the American Group Psychotherapy Association, and author of Psychodynamic Group Psychotherapy
