Review by:
N. R.

Group and Family Therapy 1983 is the eleventh volume in an annual series of invited articles by authors from the United States and abroad. Each volume is dedicated to a major figure who has contributed to either group or family therapy. This edition is dedicated to S. R. Slavson, who is regarded by many analysts and therapists to be the “father of group psychotherapy” in the United States. It contains twenty-eight articles covering eight areas: contributions of S. R. Slavson, theoretical and technical issues in group therapy, stages of development in therapy groups, group therapy with special patient population, the family paradigm in group therapy, theoretical issues in family therapy and technical interventions in family therapy.

The first article, by Leslie Rosenthal, provides a professional overview of Slavson's achievements in enabling the organizational growth of group therapy in this country. Slavson initiated children's groups at the Jewish Board of Guardians around 1934. Eventually he developed a variety of group approaches for adolescents, mothers, and fathers.
