A workbook for courses in Group Counseling and Group Therapy.While understanding theory and research is vital, future group counselors and therapists must also know how to apply that theory and how to use research findings. This new workbook helps teach just that, through interesting, practical, real-life exercises that involve all of the types of groups a counselor might lead - task/work, psycho-educational, counseling, and psychotherapy. Through its exercises, students encounter school-age adolescents, mental health outpatients, parents, community members, and others with whom a group worker might work. Prompts and activities encourage them to reflect on class presentations and experiential activities; and help them better absorb the lessons of their core text.show more
