This accessible book:

  • Demonstrates how the full range of group work, from remedial through preventive groups, is manifested in an array of community settings
  • Provides practical, concrete information about how group work is being used and can be used even more effectively
  • Draws on an up-to-date scholarly base that includes the latest research on group work
  • Highlights diversity and multicultural issues, as well as accreditation or specialty standards important to group work in community and agency settings

To promote a consistent reading experience, the books in the collection conform to editor Robert K. Conyne’s outline. Designed to provide practitioners, instructors, students, and trainees with concrete direction for improving group work, the series provides thorough coverage of the entire span of group work practice.
