Group Analysis, the approach pioneered by Foulkes, is a form of psychotherapy in small groups and also a method of studying groups and the behaviour of individuals in their social aspects. Apart from a number of practical advantages, it has features of specific value. It is the method of choice for the investigation of many problems and for the treatment of many disturbances.
