Large Group Therapy — With Young People

  • Josephine Mary Lomax-Simpson


The Messenger House Trust is a caring therapeutic community in Wimbledon, England. Our aim is to help young people who have lived in institutions and who find it difficult to see themselves as part of the wider community, or young people who have come from broken families and are disadvantaged in other ways. They may be unmarried mothers with their children, or homeless young men. We provide accommodation in 8 houses, 5 occupants per house, all within 20 minutes walk of the Large Group room in which we meet together. They learn to understand themselves by observing other members of the group and they are provided with the opportunity of widening their own social networks by meeting many other people in the special setting of the Group.
