Considering the wide field covered by current usage of the term psychotherapy, one is confronted by a number of disciplines deriving their inspiration from dynamic psychology as a whole. Carl Jung himself was critical of group therapy on the grounds that the tendency in any group was to lower the level of consciousness and thus act against the individuation process on which he laid so much stress. Adults need a means of talking to children that is neither an imposition nor an abstraction. What they say must therefore grow out of experience of children and the therapist's knowledge about his own childhood and the childhood of others than himself. For this reason in child analytical therapy the counter-transference takes a more prominent part than in the therapy of adults. The counter-transference in analytical child therapy is a specific danger and at the same time, more than in adult therapy, a source of interpretative interventions.
