The Question of Casualties in Inpatient Small Group Psychotherapy.
Erickson, Richard C.
Small Group Behavior, v18 n4 p443-58 Nov 1987
Suggests that the issue of group psychotherapy being harmful to some inpatients, although significant, is meaningless in the absence of further specification of what is being done with whom. Emphasizes the need to address therapeutic "casualties." Questions the clinical folklore regarding patients who must be protected from group psychotherapy, considering the shaky conceptual and empirical grounds for such decisions. (Author/KS)
