Group Analysis, The International Journal of Group-Analytic Psychotherapy

    Group Analysis
     was first published in January 1967 and was edited by S. H. Foulkes, the founder of group analysis. It is the international journal of the Group Analytic Society International and covers the theory, practice and experience of analytic group psychotherapy. This form of psychotherapy brings together concepts derived from psychoanalytic psychology, social psychology, group dynamics sociology and anthropology. It uses the integrative approach pioneered by S. H. Foulkes, based on the view that we are all primarily social persons.
