Review:

"What I really like about the 7th edition is the additions to the text seem to come from the authors' experience as group leaders or as counselor educators. For example, the futher explanation of the types of anxiety a client may feel (of sounding 'not intelligent', of being overcome by intense emotions, etc.) seem to come from feedback given to the authors from actual clients or counselors-in-training."

"The new material that addresses cultural issues in group leading has been integrated seamlessly into this new edition."

"I found the current manuscript to be well written, practical (while citing a variety of examples), informative (while including updated research), and encouraging to me as a practitioner. The integration and emphasis of a multicultural perspective throughout the text enlightens the reader about the importance of being sensitive while working with diverse populations. The authors have succeeded again in sharing the wisdom of their many years of group experience as counselor educators and practioners to further the professional development of neophyte or beginning counselors, as well as seasoned group counselors in a variety of settings."

"I have reviewed a couple other group texts and I like this one (and use it in my group counseling course) because it covers all the essential elements of group counseling without getting heavily bogged down in theoretical excess.' Also: '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."

"Regarding Evolution of a Group Video: 'It is probably the best group therapy video on th marketing regarding its teaching usefulness. Whether the accompanying text is used or not in conjunction with the video, the video itself is a very important addition to teaching group therapy to students."
