Taking the start from a text by Gabriele Profita, the author reflects on possible group therapy work with individuals experiencing aggressive bonds in their lives. To what extent can therapy help individuals to feel recognized and to relive crys-tallized identifications belonging to one’s personal life history in a developmental perspective? According to the author, group therapy can favour a different repre-sentation of one’s Self.
