Great Groups is a practical and inspirational guide that serves as a foundational text to creating and leading groups.  Designed primarily for the beginning group worker from any of the helping professions, the book also acts as a valuable resource for those with more group experience.  Grounded in theory, but with a strong focus on practice and skill development, David R. Hutchinson strives to connect directly with the reader with his personal and engaging writing style and "learn by doing" approach.  Following a hypothetical group from start to finish, with a plethora of examples and reflection exercises in each chapter, the book has a threefold purpose:  

  • to provide the reader with specific tools for creating, understanding, and leading effective groups;
  • to help the reader consider the application of theory to practice; and
  • to spur the reader to seriously consider making group work a cornerstone of his or her professional practice.

About the Author:

David R. Hutchinson prepares both undergraduate and graduate students for careers in psychology and counseling. His areas of special focus are group work, addictions, and grieving. A former Peace Corps volunteer, David’s priorities include travel and maintaining an international perspective in his life and work. He has trained counselors in Grenada and established sister school relationships between five schools in Vermont and Grenada. In Vermont, David continues his emphasis on intensive, process-oriented coursework with long weekend retreats at an off-campus lodge near Caspian Lake in the woods of the Northeast Kingdom.

In 2006, David was honored with the Distinguished Faculty of the Year Award. He holds positions on the boards of the New England School of Addiction Studies and Northwest Counseling and Support Services in Franklin County, Vermont. He received his doctoral degree from State University of New York, Buffalo.
