Exploring a Method for Transference Assessment in Group Therapy Using the Social Relations Model: Suggestions for Future Research
Markin, Rayna D.
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v34 n4 p307-325 Dec 2009
This article discusses how group clinicians and researchers might use a methodological and statistical model called the Social Relations Model (SRM) to circumvent common challenges to studying transference in groups. In particular, it examines how this method of transference assessment deals with the distortion aspect of transference and explains how the SRM can be used to better define transference and examine its relationship to the process and outcome of group therapy. Strengths and limitations of the model are examined and future directions for research are suggested.
