The technique of group work * 1

WithPatrick de Maré

The principal aims of a group are not only the solving of individual problems, but the teaching and the practice of integration, which calls for the co-operation of every member of the group. The technique of group work has been introduced as a method by which the rapidly growing tendency towards separateness may be combated and overcome. Group leaders are encouraged to undergo a course of psychotherapeutic analysis, so that they may attain a fuller degree of psychological freedom themselves and have a deeper knowledge of psychological technique. The aim of the Society for Creative Psychology is to construct a network of groups throughout the world, and it is hoped that group leaders, after a certain amount of experience, will, in their turn, institute groups under the parent body in whatever district they might be situated.
