Groups: A Counseling Specialty is a comprehensive look at groups, covering the history of group work, the dynamics of groups, leadership in groups, ethical issues in groups, multicultural aspects of groups, stages of group development, groups across the life span, and the theoretical basis for working with groups. The coverage is current, the style is clear and interesting, and the book challenges students to reflect on what they have learned, as well as on their own experiences in groups.
The 8th Edition contains 14 new Brief Case studies, 11 new Reflections, a new chapter on the theories of working with groups (Ch. 17), and over 120 new and updated references. This revision also contains more material on the history of groups (Ch. 18) and leading figures in this specialty.
