Review Text

"The quintessential book in the field of group work. It covers all of the main ideas and pragmatic methods that anyone leading a group of any kind must master before beginning such a task. Yalom, with Leszcz, has digested and molded the latest research in the field, along with classic studies, into an enjoyable and enlightening reading experience. The reader will discover the core mechanisms necessary for change to occur in groups. In addition, ways of dealing with difficult group members and mans of accomplishing basic tasks are laid out. This volume is both rich in language and deep in practice."-Samuel T. Gladding, PhD, president, American Counseling Association (2004-2005)
