The group is treated solely for the benefit of its individual members and its See, for example, Elliot Jaques: The Changing Culrure of a Factory, Tavistock Publications, London, 1951. Significant Features efficiency can only be gauged by the extent to which it becomes an efficient instrument for the treatment process. All these three categories of groups were found within the framework of military psychiatry during the war, especially at the Northfield Neurosis Centre. Inside the Centre all these types of groups were continually forming - spontaneous, underground, undisclosed groups; loosely formed groups with special purposes and functions; and more closely linked and highly organized groups.

In saying this we are not questioning in any way the psychotherapeutic value of participating in other kinds of groups. Human beings, especially in our own type of community, would probably break down much more often than they do but for the direct and indirect support they receive from participating in cocial groups. The strength and support provided by participation in a group's activities are provided by all these therapeutic groups and by all forms of psychotherapeutic group in the stricter sense of the term.

It has been said that these groups occupy themselves with talking. This is correct. Indeed at Northfield we at first called them 'talking groups', in contrast to all other kinds of groups. But they are not talking for talking's sake. As soon as they do this, it becomes clear that they are now talking as if talking were their occupation and they are therefore using their conversation as a defence. It is quite a different matter when they talk as a means of communication and not as a defence. In this sense verbal communication is indeed a vital and indispensable part of such a therapeutic group and in a deeper sense an understanding of verbal communication is of special importance for the understanding of the therapeutic process itself.
