9780131735958: Groups: A Counseling Specialty (5th Edition)

The fifth edition of this highly readable book examines all of the essential skills required to be an effective leader of a variety of groups in a variety of settings. It explores the history of group therapy work, and the development of groups–how they grow, how they change, and how various groups differ. It addresses the specifics of working with children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly. And, it discusses ten prominent theoretical perspectives from which groups can be approached, covering how each theory evolved, how it is practiced, and the results it most commonly achieves. Includes coverage of working with gay/lesbian/bisexual clients in groups and includes expanded coverage of the multicultural aspects of group work and understanding the influence of culture, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and other factors on how groups function and what they can accomplish. For professionals in the field of group counseling.

From the Back Cover:

Groups: A Counseling Specialty not only provides readers with everything they need to know about group therapy, group counseling, and work groups — it also challenges students to reflect upon what they have learned as well as upon their own experiences in groups. Current in its coverage and written to be enjoyed by students, this text presents a comprehensive look at groups, including the history of group work, dynamics of groups, leadership in groups, ethical issues in groups, multicultural aspects of groups, stages of group development, groups across the life span, and the theoretical basis for working with groups

 

The new sixth edition of Groups: A Counseling Specialty has been completely re-organized to enhance student learning and now contains a new chapter on specialty groups, 20 new case histories, and over 100 new references.

 

Hallmark features:  

  • An engaging writing style and ample illustrations make this book easy to follow and enjoyable to read. 
  • Case histories throughout the book help students to relate the principles and theories they have read to real-world group counseling and therapy situations. 
  • An emphasis on specialty groups and multicultural counseling allows students to learn about a diverse array of groups and how groups with distinctive focuses or backgrounds can differ. 
  • An emphasis on the development of groups from task to psychotherapy gives readers a more in-depth understanding of how different types of groups develop over time.
