Book recommendation

Posted by Rzip on November 12, 2000, at 12:03:29

I would like to recommend the following book for Read!

Currently, I am reading a National Bestseller titled 'Group, six people in search of a life' by Paul Solotaroff. As I read about the story-lines that compose each of the six individuals, I can not help but remember the people at PB and Dr. Bob, the moderator. This book is an illustration of how a small group of people can be drastically changed through effective, intense group therapy. The stories that get laid out in session are very intriguing. More importantly however, this book reminds me again of the mystery and power of this profession. It is just a marvel to me how effective "therapy" can be when all the elements come together. Namely, the face-to-face interactions, the willingness of the participants to change, the presence of a competitive peer chemistry which gets played out in a group setting, and finally, a moderator who knows how to keep the story-line running. I have always marvelled at the fact that real effective, intense therapy only takes 10 months, one year at most. Unfortunately, many people who comes into therapy expects to be comforted not challenged. Maturity is hard to come by.

Anyhow, I would highly recommend this book this all participants on Psycho-Social-Babble. If nothing else than to see the potential of how the contents on PSB can play out in a real therapy setting. Many would agree that a therapy setting is defined by two main ingredients: one, face-to-face interactions; and two, a moderator who has professional training in the area of social work and who is insightful enough to keep the story-line running throughout the session.
