Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic. XIII, 1949: New Ways of Ego Support in Residential Treatment of Disturbed Children. Fritz Redl. Pp. 60–66.

Ralph R. Greenson

For a period of about two years Redl and a group of social workers worked with five aggressive, delinquent children between eight and twelve years of age in a carefully designed plan of 'total group therapy in a residential home'. Twelve different techniques for ego support are presented. The greatest problem was the resistance toward any adult interference which could only be worked out by the use of 'depersonalized' controls, i.e., the use of neighborhood games where rules can be accepted without loss of face. The inclusion of therapeutic personnel in the group climate of their daily life permitted the development of a 'treatment rapport' which would otherwise be impossible. Residential group therapy is not meant to be a substitute for individual therapy but a preparation for it. Redl warns psychotherapists about the 'quacky' way in which group therapy is currently sold to the public. He states that we ought not to 'surrender to the shortsightedness of the money-holding public or of foundations' managers, by compromises on a qualitative level, or by a compromise with the 'numerical naïveté" so current in the civilization of our time'.
