EVANGELISTA, Paulo. A brief comment by medard boss about group psychotherapy: transference in the group situation. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2013, vol.19, n.2, pp.212-219. ISSN 1809-6867.

In 1965, Medard Boss publishes a book based on his travels to India and Indonesia, which happened a decade earlier. Invited as a visiting professor of medicine, he accompanies the westernization of Indian medicine, which gives him the chance to reflect about the limitations of western thinking about human being, as well as to consider the possibility of understanding psychopathologic phenomena based on India's millennial 'ontology'. Is this travel journal he makes a brief consideration about group psychotherapies coordinated by Indian psychiatrists. On this article we present the translation to Portuguese of the two paragraphs about group therapy, which are almost the only ones ever written by Boss about this theme. Loyal to the psychoanalytic understanding of the psychotherapeutic phenomena, from which he never meant to distance himself, Boss interprets the group phenomena as transference and resistance. By doing this, he stresses the relationship of each participant of the group with the therapist, but pushes into the background other group phenomena.
