What Your Colleagues are Saying

 

“I am very comfortable with the approach of this text. It feels very ordered and natural. I particularly like how the chapters move through the various phases of group work, beginning with more general information (group dynamics, leadership) and moving through the progressive stages of group development (planning, beginning, middle, and ending stages).”

 -- Matthew T. Theriot, University of Tennessee-Knoxville

 

“This text is an excellent one! There are several strengths including: a very structured approach to leading groups. The text includes both treatment/intervention groups and task groups, which is a plus! I really like the textboxes with bulleted summaries, and the short vignettes. I think that the authors have a very inviting writing style . . . which makes it a useful text to teach content.”

 — Nancy Kropf , Georgia State University
