Group Analysis explores the theory, practice and experience of analytical group psychotherapy, embracing concepts derived from psychoanalytic psychology, social psychology, group dynamics, sociology and anthropology. The journal is a meeting-point for these varied disciplines, providing an international interdisciplinary forum for dialogue among practitioners, theoreticians and researchers.

Differing Approaches and Contexts

Group Analysis does not exclusively represent one approach to group psychotherapy but aims to bring together differing approaches within the field. The journal explores the application of group analysis in the wider context of medical and psychiatric institutions and community mental health care services. It also addresses the group dynamic processes in organisations and in the general society.

Special Sections, Reviews and Commentaries

Group Analysis regularly includes Special Sections devoted to particular themes and welcomes commentaries on its published articles. Book reviews are an important regular feature as is the international calendar which lists forthcoming events of interest to the reader.
