Description

For a variety of courses in Group Counseling and Group Therapy.Group counseling is not individual counseling; and what works for the former likely won't work for the latter. That's the premise of this fresh new introduction to the principles, theories, and procedures of group counseling and therapy. Written to show how group work really works, this text emphasizes unique group processes and a systemic perspective, asserting that the quality of members' interactions is the critical determinant of a group's progress. By addressing all of the essential tasks in planning, conducting, and concluding groups, the author ensures students an understanding of how to create and maintain a group environment that actually succeeds in helping its members achieve significant growth and change.show more
