Abstract

The current research aimed to identify areas of recovery specific to
Group Analytic Psychotherapy (GAT) to facilitate the development
of a suitable patient reported outcome measure (PROM) for this
therapeutic modality.
Two focus groups comprising respectively of four group analytic
therapists or four service users were asked about components of
recovery that they felt were specific to receiving GAT. Thematic
Analysis (as described by Braun and Clarke, 2006) was employed to
explore their views. Three overarching themes emerged from these
groups: improvement in intrapsychic and interpsychic relationships;
improvement in quality of life; improvement in functionality and
symptom reduction. A conceptual model emerged with regards to
how those themes could inform the development on a GAT specific
patient reported outcome measure.
