“…process-oriented relationship work intertwines the tasks of family therapy with the powerful dream and body experiences of the individual; it sees the individual as a channel for the group and relationships as a channel for the individual. This combination is made possible by a fourth characteristic of the book, its commitment and focus upon the process of relating itself, i.e. conscious and unconscious aspects of relationship.”
from Arny’s book, The Dreambody in Relationships, p.2.

He uses relationship work and aspects of group process. See his paper, by clicking on the following link.
