This book provides a unique and compassionate perspective on group social work with a focus on clinical settings. In an open and user-friendly style, author Kenneth Reid offers practical, day-to-day strategies to help social workers work with people in small groups in a way that is therapeutic, growth producing, and life-enhancing. In addition to integrating small-groups theory and therapeutic principles, Social Work Practice with Groups also offers: numerous clinical examples that bring the material alive and into context, Notes to Myself" vignettes that begin with each chapter and relate the author's experience to the topics in the chapter while they convey a piece of personal and practical wisdom, and a focus on the "personhood" of the group leader, which explores how the practitioner's own personality, development, and life situation are brought into the therapeutic relationship.
