Abstract

The group conductor has a crucial input to the therapeutic activity of the group, as well as to its dynamic administration. She thinks about what is happening in the group, between group members and within individuals; her initial interventions facilitate the group process rather than addressing an individual. The conductor’s activity is influenced by her stance, her style, her orientation, her own past and present social location, her understanding of the group process, her expectations expressed both in the stated aims of the group and by her conscious and unconscious contributions.
