This widely used and respected book teaches leaders how to lead--moving them beyond simply being group facilitators. While written with counselors-to-be and practicing counselors in mind, this book also provides an outstanding discussion of group dynamics for individuals who may find themselves in group leadership positions. The authors discuss the many facets of group counseling and provide examples that show how each skill can be applied in a wide range of group settings to produce efficient working groups.
