Cohesion, or How We Stick Together
Presented by Sara Emerson, LICSW, CGP, FAGPA
We all read Yalom and learned that cohesion is one of the curative factors of group therapy. Cohesion is to group what the “relationship” is to individual treatment. So, what does this mean? The formation of initial relationships, acceptance, and a preliminary sense of relatedness is essential in the early stages of a group, and with each transition in a group (addition of new members). The leader plays a crucial and active role in setting the stage for the development of cohesion. We will discuss the elements of cohesion in groups, the leader’s role, and the challenges to leadership and joining.
