"I have used this text for a number of years and each edition gets better and better. I applaud the clarity and examples provided for each stage."
"I have reviewed countless other texts, but I have never found a text that is as student-friendly, applied, and consistent with the process of the group class."
"The self-assessments, thought questions and inventories are valuable and a hallmark of Corey texts. The exercises in each chapter are great and I have successfully used them with my students. The scenarios are appropriate and relevant to what students are bound to encounter as they work with group members and they have not only stimulated an environment where I can point out concepts and dynamics from my lectures, but they actually act as a springboard for the work that students might do in their experiential group."
