Book Description :

Group counseling is a rapidly changing field. This collection of 31 digests examines various aspects of group process and group counseling. The digests are arranged under different subject headings. In section 1, the nature of group work is examined, along with the evolution of group work training since 1990. The second section looks at application of theories in groups, highlighting such approaches as solution-focused counseling, impact therapy, and the use of gestalt psychodrama. The next heading explores groups in the schools and includes discussions of interferences to small group work, children of divorce, the use of creative arts, psychodrama techniques, and the inclusion of students with disabilities in group work. Working with adults and families is covered in section four. This section offers insights into helping older adults age, conducting parent education groups, multiple family group therapy, and multifamily group psychotherapy. Section five deals with group dynamics and group processes. Some of the suggestions here center on efficient therapy groups, using corrective feedback, using self-concept as an integrator of group process, and group psychotherapy and close friendships. A group model is also offered. Since many groups accompany special circumstances, section six gives advice on handling clients experiencing grief, how to confront hostile behavior, group dynamics and problem members, interventions with ex-cultists, members with disabilities, and multicultural group counseling. The last two sections delve into teamwork and its importance in group work, and the education of groups and of group specialists. Contains an annotated bibliography of resources on group process and group counseling. (RJM)

GET BOOK

Book Description :

The Practical Handbook of Group Counseling is written mainly as a primer to be used in group work with children, adolescents, and parents. The first edition was used by over three hundred colleges and universities in the United States. Its unique design allows the reader to use it as a ready reference for practical information. It is presented as a text that can challenge the individual's ideas and upon which the counselor can develop techniques that will fit his/her personality and meet the needs of the group. The text was the first comprehensive practical book in this field. It is a synthesis of the various problems and successes that the counselor may encounter and offers one model that may be useful in resolving and/or enhancing some of these issues. The author utilizes the public school setting as the vehicle for presenting his material. Since the school is a cross section of the population, the model proposed here can be adapted to other social agencies that utilize group counseling techniques. The author, Dr. Sheldon D. Glass, has a significant background in group work and in child and adolescent development. He is uniquely qualified in this area because he has completed formal training in education, adult psychiatry, child psychiatry, and pediatrics.

GET BOOK

Book Description :

The subtleties of counseling are very difficult to accurately express in written form alone. This is particularly true in the case of group work, where the interpersonal dynamics expand geometrically. A good group counseling textbook, such as the fifth edition of Group Counseling: Concepts and Procedures (2013), can provide a solid foundation, but video demonstrations can illustrate the nuances of the group experience in ways that words alone cannot. To provide just such a video, Kevin A. Fall has filmed a series of segments of a group in which he acts as leader with six participants and demonstrates the stages of a group as it moves from first session through termination. Fall offers regular sections of audio commentary, analysis, and processing on each segment, totaling a 120-minute program. The companion workbook provides additional information to fill in what is not shown on the film and includes exercises, activities, and discussion questions related to each video segment. The video and workbook are designed to work seamlessly with the Berg, Landreth, and Fall text, but they can also be used alongside any other group counseling textbook.
