Description

This book is different from most group work books in its emphasis on practical skill building and experiential learning. In this book, students and practitioners will find dozens of exercises that build practicetested skills related to important aspects of group work practice. A benefit of this experiential, skillbased approach is that it meshes with the competencybased approach, which will likely become the standard for accreditation over the next several years.

Features: Organized into three parts which address stages of group practice, major types of groups, and examples of group work practice with special populations; Contains customized exercises for each group work topic, designed to build the student and practitioner s skills for use in group work sessions; Special emphasis on how to bring individual sessions or groups to closure; Provides examples of group work in specialized settings: conflict resolution groups within elementary schools, pregnant teens, Latinos, and HIV/AIDS clients.
