Group Therapy in Egypt
Egypt has a central position in Africa and the Middle East. Events in the last few years have brought Egypt to the forefront of the world’s interest
in politics, sociology, and group psychology. This paper explores the evolution, development, and current status of group psychotherapy and group processes in Egypt. Starting from times of old in Pharaonic, Islamic, and Christian cultures, the paper discusses the theoretical orientation of contemporary group psychotherapy in the country, its status in the health care system, its training and research opportunities, and its current and future challenges.
