First published in 1979, Group Counselinghas consistently been a widely used and praised text, providing both novice and experienced counselors with a framework from which to expand their group counseling skills and knowledge. This fifth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the newest work in the field, the 2009 CACREP standards, and the Association for Specialists in Group Work practice standards. As in the previous editions, the authors draw upon their extensive experience and share their own styles of leading groups as a personal and practical way to illustrate the differences in group leadership. Berg, Landreth, and Fall present a thorough discussion of the rationale for using group counseling with an emphasis on the group providing a preventive environment and a setting for self-discovery. They examine the group facilitator's internal frame of reference and the overcoming of initial group leader anxiety, and explore typical problems in the development, facilitation, and termination of the group process and provide suggested solutions. Application of group counseling is considered with children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly, as well as with special populations, such as abused children, juvenile offenders, and individuals with emotional difficulties. A helpful glossary of group counseling terminology provides a quick reference source for important terms is also provided. New to this edition are A chapter on diversity and social justice in group work An expanded chapter on co-leadership, a topic often ignored in other group counseling texts Separate chapters for group work with children and group work with adolescents, allowing the reader to focus more on the unique aspects of working with each population A chapter on evaluating groups at the leader, group, and individual member levels A collection of supplemental resources are available online to benefit both instructors and students. Instructors will find PowerPoint slides and test banks to aid in conducting their courses, and students can access questions for thought and reflection to supplement their review of the chapters in the text.
