A Study of Concurrent Group Psychotherapy With Five Parents and Individual Psychotherapy With the Child in a Child Guidance Center
Group therapy is one of the methods of treatment used at the Guidance Center of New Rochelle in meeting the needs of clients who seek its services. Initially, this method was employed exclusively with mothers, but with the growth of the agency's program, boys' groups were formed and plans made for a group of girls. While consideration was given to using group therapy with fathers also, up to the time of this research it has been impractical because of the conflict of the working hours of most fathers with the clinic schedule. in observing group therapy while a student in psychiatric social work at The Guidance Center, the writer obtained the impression that the method offered an especially effective way of overcoming adverse parental attitudes, and a study was therefore undertaken to verify or disprove this impression.
