This article is an example showing the useful relationship between clinical practice and scientific research. The aim of our study is the evaluation (effectiveness, process) in a small psychotherapy group, groupanalitic methodology, the group ended in one year and done in a public Psychotherapy Center. The patients of the group have various diagnosis (neurosis, personality disease). The empirical data collected before, during and at the end of the group were processed and crossed from the colleagues’ group of the research only at the end of the therapeutic process: so the comparison between clinical observation and data could be done in a quite indipendent way. From the results it springs either common conclusions or different between clinical observations and empirical data; otherwise new interesting questions come out: you can see our remarks about it.
