This best-selling text is a broad, integrative overview of group dynamics presented in a well researched, readable, and experiential format.

This text introduces readers to the theory and research findings needed to understand how to make groups effective, and it helps build the skills required to apply that knowledge in practical situations. More than a textbook, Joining Together illustrates how this knowledge and mastery of skills creates choices, opportunities, and successes for each individual. No competing text offers the scope of coverage and the range of experiential exercises of Joining Together


Combines theoretical and empirical knowledge with practical ways to apply it in a group situation, and offers a wealth of experiential exercises and simulations in worksheet form with space for answers. After chapters on basic concepts in group dynamics and experiential learning, coverage includes group goals, communication within groups, leadership, using power, and decision making, controversy, diversity, leading growth and counseling groups, and team development. This seventh edition takes into account changes in the field in the past two years. David W. Johnson is affiliated with the University of Minnesota. Annotation c.
