277p, index. Methods involving group processes are now used in many different settings: in marriage counseling, in social work training, in psychological therapy and in organization development programmes of several kinds, to name just a few. These group approaches have become the focus for an enormous amount of research activity and experimental applications in the last few years, and it is this growth of interest that has motivated the present volume. The editor and authors of these chapters have sought to assess the conceptual or theoretical substance of these group approaches and of the processes upon which they depend. Their purpose is to begin to establish theoretical bases from which the research and applied activity can continue to develop soundly, whilst benefiting from the re-assessment of the large volume of data generated by experiential groups over the last two decades. The analyses and ideas presented in these invited contributions should help to enhance an understanding of group behaviour, and thus also help to build a coherent conceptual framework of social relationships and social interaction generally.
