Sample text

H. Foulkes, more focused on helping therapy, and Bion, with a definite tendency to describe the inner, non-apparent links which produced clear-cut movements in small groups. Group therapy had increasingly concretised offshoots such as couple therapy, family therapy and Moreno’s psychodrama, which in fact preceded the Second World War but had a definite impulse and popularisation after it.

It is not presently possible, due to the sheer lack of statistical studies, to know if the above-mentioned “many people” form a majority of human beings, or if it is just the case of a ruling elite skilled in imposing their own pleasure-ridden interests.
