Journal of Analytical Psychology
Relational' group psychotherapy is a development of group therapy where the relational component begins to assume a dominant role, for example, where the group leader cannot be understood as separate from his group. Billow shows how he has been able to use these notions in clinical work, in supervision and in teaching, with many vignettes in each chapter. He also makes use of Foulkesian group analytic ideas and makes links between Foulkes and Bion'.

This book was a true delight... [Billow] has brought Bion's early work on the group experience, Bion's complex theoretical writing on the basic assumptions (i.e., three types of primitive object relations, fantasies and affects which individuals project and act out in social settings), and Bion's writing on the countertranference experience, together.
