Social workers, planners, health professionals, and human-service administrators spend much of their time in meetings, working in and with groups. What meaning does participation in these groups have for members? Some of the events that are most important for members of the various professions, and those whom they serve, take place within these groups. Health and human services depend upon their working groups for their development and allocation of resources, their standards of quality, and the evaluation of their success or failure. In short, these groups are relied upon to come up with creative solutions to complex problems. Despite the amount of time spent in meetings, committees, and so on, very little has been written about the skills necessary for effective participation and leadership within working groups. With that in mind, Ephross and Vassil combine innovative group theory and practice in this "how-to" guide for professionals who take a variety of roles within the group. They draw on examples from social agencies, a hospital, a low-income community, and the boardroom, providing practical principles for day-to-day group life based on a democratic model. This revised edition also explores the changes that have taken place in the structure and operation of working groups in recent years and the heightened expectations for groups within large organizations.

Group Psychotheraphy “Finally, we have a book about group therapy that answers the question, ‘Is there one book that covers the waterfront but is deep enough to provide more than just an overview of models, and can actually help me become a better group therapist?’ This is such a book.” International Journal of Group Psychotherapy “This volume reflects the expansion in the field of psychodynamic group psychotherapy that today incorporates a variety of theoretical perspectives. Leading experts from various countries provide the reader with a clear overview of the different approaches. In addition, there are chapters in this volume that deal with special populations and conditions of treatment. While providing a straightforward introduction to the plethora of material in the field, the volume will also serve as a comprehensive resource for any seasoned group psychotherapist.” Howard D. Kibel, Professor of Psychiatry, New York Medical College and past President of the American Group Psychotherapy Association, USA The Handbook of Group Psychotherapy is a user-friendly guide to conducting group psychotherapy in various settings and with different populations. It has been designed as a resource for new professionals, including graduate students in mental health, as well as more seasoned clinicians planning to integrate group psychotherapy into their work. Bringing together pre-eminent group psychotherapists from different theoretical perspectives and countries, the articles in this volume present their approaches to conducting groups with diverse populations in different settings. Written in straight-forward, jargon-free language, the articles directly speak to the needs of the mental health professional planning to begin a group or to strengthen an existing group. Whether combined with a formal class in group techniques, human relations, or group dynamics, or in an institute training group practitioners, or read as part of one’s own professional development, this work is likely to advance the reader’s clinical competency and strengthen their self-confidence as a leader. Using a personal style and speaking from years of experience, the contributors provide hands-on suggestions as to how a group leader really works. From determining patient or client needs, developing treatment goals, and constructing a group, to handling emergencies, the contributors address the needs of the new group leader. The articles also address issues of diversity and globalism, as well as trauma and resiliency, making this a truly post-9/11 contribution.
