The physical and mental consequences of the Holocaust combined with difficult present events and the problems of old age can have devastating effects on survivors. Our clinic has recently introduced a psychodynamic-supportive group therapy model for elderly Holocaust survivors. The model includes specific integrative interventions, which are based on Horowitz's model of mourning and coping with stress and the leaders' clinical experience. The aim of the group is to improve the patients' homeostasis and enhance their ego functions and adaptation to inner and outer worlds. The theory and working model are described.
