About Group Analysis

Group analysis is an established method of psychotherapy and research. It is based on the observation that the group addresses relevant issues for its members and can achieve deep and lasting changes in their lives. The beginner of group analysis was S.H. Foulkes. Its theoretical background is psychoanalysis, and it is also informed in other fields of research (e.g. sociology, systems theory).

Besides being a psychotherapeutic method that improves the quality of life, group analysis is applicable in education, training, organisational consultancy, or wherever the knowledge of group processes and the skills to address them are needed or useful.

If you came to this site in search of a regular psychotherapy, you may wish to explore the lists herehere (in Slovenian) and here (in Slovenian). Working knowledge of Slovenian is necessary to join group analytic psychotherapy.

Foreign students and members of the international group analytic community may however occasionally find conferences and other events organised by the Slovenian Group Analytic Society in English language (see ‘Announcements’ and ‘Events’ on the Society's site).
