Clinical Training - a contextual approach to the use of experiential groups.

Gianni Montesarchio, Claudia Venuleo


The present contribution will analyze the use of group discussions as a clinical-psychological tool for clinical training.
Several questions guide the study. How can we characterize the concept of group? What is a group interview? How should this psychological device be used for training in psychotherapy and more generally in clinical training?
The proposal advanced below looks at the possibility of reconstructing existing theoretical, clinical and methodological aspects of “the group” within a general epistemological framework. This allows us to change the focus from a specific model of School and move towards a dialogue between theoretical perspectives which recognize a common postulate: the assumption of a dialogic and contextual foundation of the mind, its development and change. The purpose is to develop a dialogic and contextual foundation for clinical action, training and treatment.
