This text offers a guide to group work theory and practice in a variety of human service settings. Drawing on contributions from experienced group leaders and participants, Fiona McDermott outlines the various ways in which group work can be used. She argues that facilitators need to "think group".
A very practical and accessible book. ...a valuable text not only for new practitioners, for whom it will be an excellent introduction to groupwork theory and practice, but also for experienced practitioners' (GroupworkVol.15 (2))
