Best-selling author, Gerald Corey's unique, clear and straight forward writing style is once again reflected in THEORY AND PRACTICE OF GROUP COUNSELING. This new edition provides students with an in-depth overview of ten group theories and also illustrates how to put these theories into practice. Students learn about group process, applications to the stages of a group and also learn how to apply group counseling to multicultural, ethical, school and time-limited contexts. The new edition in combination with the student and instructor supplements, now more than ever, equips students to not only learn theory but also put it into practice by utilizing case examples, reflective exercises, video demonstrations and quizzing.

Review:

"The book is very well written and not boring --- a must for a text. I especially like the inclusion of personal anecdotes and examples intermingled with the didactic portions of the text. I believe the pace and detail are good for this general level of introduction to group counseling "

"I would describe this text as a combination of overview of theories and a manual for how to approach leading a group. This combination is its strength. Another strength is its attention to multicultural issues."

"If I were to write a text on group counseling, it would be TPGC. Clearly, this is an exemplary text within the field, and Corey is clear, comprehensive, and concise. Unlike many other group counseling texts within the field, TPGC emphasizes self-development and the fact that group counseling is a complex developmental process. In closing, Corey distinguishes himself as a proponent of multicultural counseling and applications."

"The writing style, organization, pace, detail, and accuracy are excellent. I think that this text will give students the courage and confidence to perform group counseling."

"This is a very useful textbook that I have used as a required text for the last 13 years in teaching group counseling. It is well-written and very appropriate for graduate students in a master's degree program in counseling."
