In this exciting video with accompanying workbook (which you can purchase as an interactive tool), you will see Marianne and Jerry Corey in action as they demonstrate their integrative approach to group work. As the two-hour video unfolds, viewers will see a real group—not actors role-playing—move through its various stages and will observe group members discuss real issues and present reactions in the group context. The accompanying workbook provides exercises and explorations that link the video to the Coreys’ best selling group books: GROUPS: PROCESS AND PRACTICE, GROUP TECHNIQUES, and THEORY AND PRACTICE OF GROUP COUNSELING (both the textbook and the Student Manual).
