An engaging and current look at all aspects of group work filled with illustrations, research, and practical skills.

This user-friendly text provides readers with a complete and compelling view of group work, including types of groups, development of groups, dynamics within groups, diversity and multicultural issues in groups, specialty groups, ethical and legal issues in groups, groups across the lifespan, theories of groups, and the history of group work. Well-written and filled with helpful and enjoyable illustrations, this sixth edition textbook helps students to fully understand the four basic types of groups — therapy, counseling, guidance, and work/task — through case histories, examples, and clear language. At the same time, Groups: A Counseling Specialty challenges readers to think through how they would handle various group situations and to reflect and learn from their own experiences in groups.
