Gruppi has been selected by the American Psychological Association for its PsycINFO Journal Coverage List, an electronic bibliographic database that lists the sector's most prestigious journals and worldwide publications for the purpose of analyzing articles and quotations. As the journal of COIRAG (Confederation of Italian Organizations for Analytical Research on Groups), Gruppiserves as an agile and articulate tool for in-depth research into the psychic reality of individuals and groups, a reality with which relationships and meaningful systems are built. Taking as its starting point the notion of a group as a psychic space, and considering its various facets, the journal offers psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists and social workers monographic and multi-thematic contents as a basis for reflection and training. The theme of 'groups' is revealed in its many complex aspects, both in relation to psychopathology and to its uses as training, organizational, social and community tool.
