Finally, a textbook that actually teaches students how to effectively lead counseling and classroom groups in schools!
This practical, user-friendly book contains the most relevant information critical to working with students in both classroom psychoeducational and counseling group work in schools. Building upon students’ and practitioners’ generalist preparation to lead groups, Group Work in Schools: Preparing, Leading, Responding offers readers numerous windows through which they can view the wide range of applicable rationales for group work, the preparation and skill sets required for confidence and success in conducting groups in schools, and the ‘nuts and bolts’ of group structure and form–enough to build their own groups.
