With 109 entries, this book provides a comprehensive overview of social work with groups, from its initial development to its astounding range of diverse practice today with many populations in different places." "The articles have been written by social workers trained in the group approach from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Spain, and Japan, and all involved are well known group workers, acknowledged as experts in the area. The book covers all aspects or social work with groups, including its history, values, major models, approaches and methods, education, research, journals, phases of development, working with specific populations and ages, plus many more. Each article includes references which can be a major resource for future exploration in the particular subject area."
