Abstract

Although the use of group procedures for dealing with emotionally disturbed individuals goes back centuries, it is only within comparatively recent years that it has been used extensively and intensively in our mental hospitals with an awareness of group mechanisms and the forces that make up for restoring the desirable state of psychic equilibrium. As applied today group psychotherapy is initially a concession to the fact that there are too few therapists for the many patients in our mental hospitals and that, in order to reach as many patients as possible, group techniques must be applied.
