This edition continues to provide students with the most comprehensive and readable introduction to leading groups. The text is completely updated and includes new chapters on communities and groups; feminist intervention in groups; and the mandated content in the revised curriculum policy statements of the Council on Social Work Education. New material is presented on the Tuckman and bales models of group development; the RAP framework for leading multiracial groups; conflict resolution strategies; and professional boundaries with clients. Each chapter is designed to facilitate learning through the laboratory approach. First, the goals of the chapter are stated and then theoretical material is presented on how to achieve these goals. Next, group exercises that illustrate key concepts are explained and performed, providing students with the skills needed to reach the chapter's goals. Students are encouraged to conduct class sessions and lead classroom exercises.
