The clinical approach as a means of sociological research is essentially a group way of studying and solving problems.1 Perhaps this group approach has been most extensively developed in the fields of medicine, psychology, and social work. It is difficult to explain why a discipline which analyzes and studies social relationships has relegated to the background or never developed the possibilities and values of clinical sociology.2
