Group Techniques offers a practical new approach to understanding and implementing a broad range of group techniques. Through the Purposeful Group Techniques Model (PGTM), a generic, flexible conceptual model that can be adapted for use in a variety of contexts, the text demonstrates how group leaders can choose counseling techniques purposefully based on the type of group, the group’s developmental stage, and applicable best practice guidelines. Talking through and comparing choices of techniques, along with each person's rationale will provide the very richest of learning experiences.  As one result, students will not only learn about how to select and use group techniques but will learn a lot about themselves as people and group leaders. With the help of the model and concrete case-based descriptions of how to lead groups, the text examines counseling, psychoeducation, psychotherapy, and task groups.
