A supplemental text for Group Counseling Practicum courses, courses in Group Theory, and Internships.
Intended as a supplement to a theoretical counseling text, this handbook presents twenty-three practical approaches to working with children, adolescents, and adults on such goals as making friends, succeeding in school, planning a career, and being a good parent. Taken together, these ideas will well equip future counselors to address a variety of issues in a wide range of settings.
Helps students compare and contrast modalities—task, psycho educational, counseling, and psychotherapy—to determine a “best fit” between modality and client group.
Gives the beginning practitioner a solid framework for structuring therapeutic group experiences.
Illustrates the versatility of text approaches—lets students see that almost any approach can be adapted for almost any group.
Provides a broad knowledge base that illustrates the wide range of group techniques—makes it easy for students to find a match to fit their clients and theirgoals.
