This book effectively demonstrates how group work is being used within schools, from elementary through college and university levels. The authors emphasize remedial, developmental, and preventive applications of groups—including psychoeducation group formats—and cover groups that have an educational and/or career focus.
Groups in Schools is part of the Group Work Practice Kit: Improving the Everyday Practice of Group Work, a collection of nine books each authored by scholars in the specific field of group work. To promote a consistent reading experience, the books in the collection conform to editor Robert K. Conyne’s outline. Designed to provide practitioners, instructors, students, and trainees with concrete direction for improving group work, the series provides thorough coverage of the entire span of group work practice.
This book is endorsed by the Association for Specialists in Group Work.
