It is important in the thinking of the therapist as well. Therapists cannot, for example, treat depression per se: depression offers no effective therapeutic handhold, no rationale for examining interpersonal relationships, which, as I hope to demonstrate, is the key to the therapeutic power of the therapy group. It is necessary, first, to translate depression into interpersonal terms and then to treat the underlying interpersonal pathology. Thus, the therapist translates depression into its interpersonal issues—for example, passive dependency, isolation, obsequiousness, inability to express anger, hypersensitivity to separation—and then addresses those interpersonal issues in therapy.

In fact, therapy groups are often led by a male and female therapy team in a deliberate effort to simulate the parental configuration as closely as possible. Once the initial discomfort is overcome, it is inevitable that, sooner or later, the members will interact with leaders and other members in modes reminiscent of the way they once interacted with parents and siblings. If the group leaders are seen as parental figures, then they will draw reactions associated with parental/authority figures: some members become helplessly dependent on the leaders, whom they imbue with unrealistic knowledge and power; other blindly defy the leaders, who are perceived as infantilizing and controlling; others are wary of the leaders, who they believe attempt to strip members of their individuality; some members try to split the co-therapists in an attempt to incite parental disagreements and rivalry; some disclose most deeply when one of the co-therapists is away; some compete bitterly with other members, hoping to accumulate units of attention and caring from the therapists; some are enveloped in envy when the leader’s attention is focused on others: others expend energy in a search for allies among the other members, in order to topple the therapists; still others neglect their own interests in a seemingly selfless effort to appease the leaders and the other members.

I agree with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross that the question is not whether but how to tell a patient openly and honestly about a fatal illness. 33 Physicians often add to the isolation by keeping patients with advanced cancer at a considerable psychological distance—perhaps to avoid their sense of failure and futility, perhaps also to avoid dread of their own death. They make the mistake of concluding that, after all, there is nothing more they can do. Yet from the patient’s standpoint, this is the very time when the physician is needed the most, not for technical aid but for sheer human presence.
