Traditionally, psychotherapy groups for children included only relatively intact youngsters. This paper describes a group consisting of four (near) psychotic children and two co-therapists which met for over three years. The developmental changes which occurred in the group over the course of time will be identified and discussed using a neo-psychoanalytic, object relations framework.
