With the guidance of world-renowned counseling author, teacher, and practitioner Gerald Corey, best-selling Theory & Practice of Group Counseling, 8e equips readers with the knowledge and skills for effective group counseling and leadership. You'll learn key theoretical approaches to group leadership and how to successfully apply each in practice.

With Corey's clear, straightforward writing style, you will have no difficulty understanding each theoretical concept and its relationship to group practice. And as you explore different approaches, your growing knowledge will enable you to integrate techniques from the various approaches you'll study in this book to create a unique approach that works successfully for YOU.

The book is very well written and not boring --- a must for a text. I especially like the inclusion of personal anecdotes and examples intermingled with the didactic portions of the text. I believe the pace and detail are good for this general level of introduction to group counseling "

"I would describe this text as a combination of overview of theories and a manual for how to approach leading a group. This combination is its strength. Another strength is its attention to multicultural issues."

"If I were to write a text on group counseling, it would be TPGC. Clearly, this is an exemplary text within the field, and Corey is clear, comprehensive, and concise. Unlike many other group counseling texts within the field, TPGC emphasizes self-development and the fact that group counseling is a complex developmental process. In closing, Corey distinguishes himself as a proponent of multicultural counseling and applications."

"The writing style, organization, pace, detail, and accuracy are excellent. I think that this text will give students the courage and confidence to perform group counseling."

"This is a very useful textbook that I have used as a required text for the last 13 years in teaching group counseling. It is well-written and very appropriate for graduate students in a master's degree program in counseling."

Great job March 21, 2011
I really like Corey's books. They are easy to read, comprehensive, and well laid out. This book would be useful for anyone that wishes to learn more about conducting group counseling. I normally hate text books, but this one is one I actually enjoyed reading. It is also one of the initial books that made me interested in counseling. It has helped me lead groups of various kinds and types. I recommend this to anyone who wants to learn to be an effective or better group leader. It is a must read.
