A practical guide to group work in community and agency settings
Group work is becoming commonplace in a variety of community settings, including sexual assault centers, mental health centers, battered women’s shelters, chemical dependency units, community planning, employee training and development, employee assistance centers, and in other outpatient, inpatient, and residential settings. This accessible book:

  • Demonstrates how the full range of group work, from remedial through preventive groups, is manifested in an array of community settings
  • Provides practical, concrete information about how group work is being used and can be used even more effectively
  • Draws on an up-to-date scholarly base that includes the latest research on group work
  • Highlights diversity and multicultural issues, as well as accreditation or specialty standards important to group work in community and agency settings
Groups in Community and Agency Settings 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.
