How to Improve the Everyday Practice of Group Work

Edited by:


© 2014 | 800 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Authored and edited by leading experts in the field of group work and endorsed by the Association for Specialists in Group Work, this kit is a collection of brief, research-based practice volumes designed to provide practitioners, instructors, students, and trainees concrete direction for improving group work. Coverage spans the entire group work process from conceiving an idea for a group and delivering it to evaluating its conduct and effectiveness. The nine individual books address critical practical areas within group work and follow a general outline prepared by the editor which includes:  theoretical aspects of the process, the evidence base and support, the topic highlighted, two real case studies, and five learning exercises. Each book in the kit also covers diversity and multicultural issues as well as accreditation or specialty standards.
