The life of a group on a locked ward

  • Lisetta M. Lovett (a1)
Extract

Group therapy in an out-patient setting has been well established for over 40 years. Today, most acute wards offer some in-patient group therapy experience. Duration of in-patient stay (Yalom, 1983), the type of group therapy offered (Cox, 1976; Kanas, 1980) and patient psychopathology, can all alter efficacy of in-patient group therapy. However, in-patient units do appear to benefit from group therapy programmes, although some approaches are more effective than others and psychotic patients may suffer from the traditional group therapy approach (Cox, 1983).
