    DescriptionWith its effective outcomes, relative speed and reduced costs, the group format is becoming increasingly popular for work with children in counselling and educational settings. Drawing from their extensive experience of running childrens groups and training group leaders, Kathryn and David Geldard describe the entire process of running groups from the initial planning to post-group evaluation. Topics covered include the benefits and disadvantages of running groups and the types of group available, as well as the planning, designing, implementation and evaluation of group programmes. Filled with lots of ideas, activities, games and work sheets for use in group programmes, as well as examples of complete programmes for particular problems such as domestic violence and low self esteem, this accessible and practical book should be an valuable resource for anyone wishing to run groups for children.
