Using a plentiful selection of skill-building and self-evaluation exercises, author Charles Zastrow's comprehensive, workbook-style text promotes his philosophy that you can learn group leadership skills best by practicing them in class. In this seventh edition of SOCIAL WORK WITH GROUPS: A COMPREHENSIVE WORKBOOK, Zastrow discusses topics central to a successful understanding of group leadership: stages of groups, group dynamics, verbal and nonverbal communication, types of groups, and diversity in groups. When you participate in groups, the classroom becomes a "lab" where you can experience what it's like to work in and lead the many kinds of groups the author discusses.
