The 'anti-group' is a major conceptual addition to the theory and practice of group psychotherapy. It comprises the negative, disruptive elements, which threaten to undermine and even destroy the group, but when contained, have the potential to mobilise the group's creative processes. Understanding the 'anti-group' gives therapists new perspectives on the nature of relationships and alternative strategies for managing destructive behaviour.

- Jerome S. Ganns "International Journal of Group Psychotherapy
"I have seldom read a book as balanced, scholarly, integrative, theoretically compelling, and faithful to the realities of clinical practice as this one...I think the Anti-Group will be a classic in the field."
