First Sentence
If this were a treatise on outpatient group psychotherapy, it would be entirely appropriate to plunge directly into clinical waters, to begin the discussion of clinical strategy and technique immediately, in this very first paragraph. Read the first page

perfect 8 Mar 2007
By D - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Every time I pick up a Yalom book I ask myself why I have waited so long to read another one. His books are a pleasure to read and speak to people on all levels of experience and expertise. The title of this book says it all and is the perfect book for someone who will be working in an inpatient setting. This is a must-read for all professionals working with this population and speaks to the challenges and frustrations of this environment.

Dated, but still helpful 29 Dec 2013
By Sarah MJM - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was written ages ago, but it is still useful. I don't much care for the history of inpatient group therapy, but the examples and suggestions helped me understand that inpatient group is limited and is for the purpose of getting them used to groups after they discharge into an IOP program. This helped be become a better group therapist. I lent it to so many people at my work that I never ended up getting it back.

Excellent and Useful Guide 6 Sep 2014
By Cole Williams - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent as usual for Yalom: deeply self-conscious and self-confident in describing purely ethical, analytic techniques in inpatient group therapy. Tellingly, this was the only complete reference to inpatient group therapy that I could find. And to think of the commonality of group therapy practices on inpatient wards!

Excellent group therapy book for inpatient settings 1 Jan 2009
By E. Valentine - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Yalom identifies the pros and cons of conducting group therapy in inpatient settings. He provides excellent advice about how to conduct group therapy in what is perceived by many to be a difficult setting in which to conduct group therapy. I refer to this book frequently and highly recommend it.
