This article presents the group stories fabric technique (GSFT) that is a tool that helps group members confront transference that is projected onto other members, the group leader, or the group as a whole. The GSFT involves the recounting of personal stories by group members and the giving and receiving of feedback in response to these stories. The technique consists of the following four phases: (a) Each member tells a personal story; (b) the other members provide feedback to each story, and this feedback is analyzed; (c) transference issues are analyzed; and (d) the group atmosphere is discussed in the context of the group story.
