Foundations of Group Counseling gives future counselors a solid foundation with a practical, application-based approach. It offers a broad perspective on group work, balancing major issues and essential knowledge with practical guidelines and how-to strategies. Many topics that are often ignored by comparable texts are covered in depth. Separate chapters provide thorough coverage of group work and addictions, group work with children, groups for adolescents, groups with older adults and facilitating groups with challenging member behaviors.

Combining practice, research and theory, the 1st Edition offers students the tools and strategies they need for successful group work practice.
