Summary

This unique text uses group development as an organizing principle, offering students a far more dynamic view of groups and helping them understand that group processes operate differently at different points in a group's life cycle and in various types of groups. Group Processes is an accessible, research-based book on how groups develop and function. Grounded in theory and research, the text is written in a straightforward way with practical examples integrated throughout to hold student interest. It offers more than just an understanding of group phenomena; it also provides strategies to enhance the functioning of groups of which students are a part. It stresses how knowledge of group development can be applied to work groups, therapy groups, learning groups, and many others.
