This unique new book provides welcome guidance for researchers studying the complexities of group process. The editors begin by introducing nine approaches currently in use for studying group process. Contributors apply each of the nine approaches to analyze the same clinical vignette. These chapters enable readers to understand the method of each measurement system, the theory on which the system is based, and what has been learned about group psychotherapy processes through the application of each measurement system. This thorough examination provides a rich source for theory building and research design in analyzing change in groups, as well as an innovative resource for students, teachers, clinicians, and researchers.
