"Group Work: A Humanistic and Skills Building Approach delivers as promised: a book solidly informed by humanistic values and principles: a book willing to teach clinical skills through a combination of theory and detailed case examples: a book equally of use and at ease in the classroom as in the field."
This book, with its 12 well-written, easy to read chapters, is highly recommended to those interested in studying group work. Social work students and supervisors will find this book useful because it presents many illustrations of group meetings that help readers to understand values, norms and practitioners’ roles.
To enhance knowledge of working with groups
Useful reading for me in terms of preparing my powerpoint presentation; interesting reading for students who want to investigate further.
This second edition offers much in the way of how group work and Humanistic theory and practice integrate. The illustrations are particularly useful in integrating theory to contextual examples of group work and challenges readers to understand the process in application.
Certain chapters of this book are most relevant to this module and student group. It is intended to be a reference book for students and it will also support them in reading around subject areas for topics within lecture/small groupwork series and also their assignments.
