“Cycling Over Everest” – Groupwork with Depressed Women

“Cycling Over Everest” – Groupwork with Depressed Women

Abstract: In England, there are fewer and fewer opportunities for social workers to undertake groupwork. The following is a description of an innovative feminist approach involved in adapting psychoanalytic theories, particularly the work of Winnicott, within a groupwork context. The paper describes a typical group session, preceded by an account of some of the main theories and practices informing our work.
