Using a plentiful selection of skill-building and self-evaluation exercises, author Charles Zastrow's comprehensive, workbook-style resource promotes his philosophy that you can learn group leadership skills best by practicing them in class.

With support from this book, your classroom will become a "lab" where you can experience what it's like to work in and lead many kinds of groups. Updated throughout with timely new topics and firsthand accounts from experienced social group work professionals, this edition also includes a new chapter on treatment groups with diverse and vulnerable populations.
