"This book provides an outstanding resource for group workers. Group work instructors will find the book a comprehensive text covering major theories and models of group work, as well as cutting-edge issues and techniques. The list of chapter authors is a virtual `who's who' of social work with groups. This handbook will quickly become the major text in the field."--Richard M. Tolman, PhD, School of Social Work, University of Michigan "A long-needed and satisfying volume from editors and contributors with varying views of the field. Covered are important theoretical perspectives on group work and group dynamics, approaches to group work in different fields of interest and with different populations, and much, much more. By including solid research findings in each chapter, and infusing the volume with clinical wisdom, the editors have helped make this one of the most complete resources of its kind."--Paul Abels, PhD, Department of Social Work (Emeritus), California State University, Long Beach "This superb contribution to the literature assembles a roster of highly skilled social work scholars and practitioners, organizes the breadth of group work applications in a new and viable way, and makes the richness of social work knowledge available to all professionals who work with groups. An unequaled text for master's- and doctoral-level courses."--Catherine Papell, DSW, ACSW, Professor Emerita, Adelphi University School of Social Work
