Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

[automatically translated] Group therapy is considered one of the treatments of choice for DUS, finding wide use in the outpatient setting and US and Anglo-Saxon residential. Nevertheless there are significant gaps with respect to evaluation of the effectiveness of group psychotherapy, especially the psychodynamic matrix. This research paper proposes an analysis of cohesion and therapeutic factors in a year within a psychotherapeutic slow-open group community setting for DUS patients. The group of existential-phenomenological matrix involved 28 patients who took turns taking into account new inputs and outputs (completion or drop out). The instruments used are the Group / Leader Cohesion Scale (GLCS) and Therapeutic Group Interaction Factors Scale (TGIF); the timing of administration were as follows: alternating sessions for GLMCS and each session for TGIF. The results show high levels of cohesion than the group and the therapist despite the institutional turmoil that cross the group-matrix (drop out, newcomers, interruption); compared to the therapeutic factors, those most active seem to be information, existential factors, Universality, Interpersonal Learning. The results appear in line with empirical research that considers the Cohesion a particularly important construct in predicting the success of group therapy.
