The perfect text for preparing students to work with either treatment (ongoing) or task (special focus) groups, this newly revised edition offers the most up-to-date research available in the social work field.
An Introduction to Group Work Practice, Sixth Edition, continues to stress the importance of developing skills in group-work and provides the most comprehensive information available on the market today. Students receive a thorough grounding in areas that vary from treatment to organizational and community settings. The addition of new case studies, practice examples, and guiding principles add to the ease and readability of this popular text.
The third edition includes a sharper focus on generalist practice and on typologies which illustrate group work practice (both treatment groups and task groups) at the micro, meso, and macro level. Additions include a new chapter on leadership and diversity, and new material on confidentiality, telephone and computer groups, dealing with conflict, and working with reluctant and involuntary group members.
