For example, Radomile (2000), describing the group format for the treatment of obesity mentioned earlier, notes that common schemas for individuals in this patient population are “I’ve always been fat, I’ll always be fat, and nothing can change it” THEORETICAL APPROACHES TO GROUP PSYCHOTHERAPY 41 (p. 118). Schemas are then subjected to the cognitive restructuring process that has been implemented in relation to automatic thoughts. During this phase, members are also facilitated in identifying cognitive biases that may support the development of dysfunctional thoughts.

Therapist: What do you think? What goes through your mind . . maybe very fleetingly . . right before you decide to remain quiet? Thomasina: Well, I suppose I think I don’t want to be rude. Reggie: Who cares about that? Thomasina: But I also think the person wouldn’t like it. Maybe he’ll be angry. Kelly: I always figure maybe he’ll be so angry he just won’t want to be with me. Therapist [to Kirsten]: Are some of your thoughts like Kelly’s and Thomasina’s? Kirsten: It’s funny . . when they said the anger part, I realized that I would be happy if Jack would be angry.

In this application, the therapist actively encourages the formation of subgroups based upon members’ similar positions with respect to a group-level conflict on the premise that subgroups provide a supportive structure in which psychologi- 36 ESSENTIALS OF GROUP THERAPY cal work is maximized. To do so, the therapist might point out a similarity to various members’ expressed positions or may forthrightly ask a member with which subgroup he or she feels greater affinity. Once subgroups are formed, members in a subgroup can proceed to examine the differences among their positions, a task facilitated by the relatively open boundaries that exist among members of a subgroup.
