First published in 1979, Group Counseling has consistently been a widely used and praised text, providing both novice and experienced counselors with a framework from which to expand group counseling skills and knowledge. This revised sixth edition offers a reader-friendly and engaging journey through the group process that is congruent with 2016 CACREP standards and the Association for Specialists in Group Work (ASGW) practice standards and grounded in the most cutting-edge research and theory. The authors present a thorough discussion of the rationale for using group counseling with an emphasis on the group's role as a preventive environment and as a setting for self-discovery. They examine the group facilitator's internal frame of reference and ways to overcome initial anxiety about leading groups, and they also explore typical problems in the development, facilitation, and termination of the group process and provide suggested solutions. Individual chapters are included to explore the application of group counseling with children and adolescents.

Notable additions include: an expanded chapter on diversity and social justice in group work; an expanded chapter on co-leadership, a topic often ignored in other group counseling texts; a new chapter on ethics and leadership training; a reworked chapter on leader functions, styles, and skills; and a reworking of the chapter on group counseling with children that includes an in-depth look at Landreth's innovative and empirically validated Child-Parent-Relationship Therapy.

"Group Counseling: Concepts and Procedures is my go-to group counseling text. I've used it as a core text in my master's group counseling course for several years. It is an accessible text that my students actually enjoy reading, and provides a great balance of important theoretical concepts with practical strategies. The authors write with humor and empathy, which helps the students relate to the material quite easily."
George McMahon, PhD, assistant professor, School Counseling program, University of Georgia

"This book emphasizes the skills necessary for effective group leadership and contains a wealth of information for beginning group workers. It is an up-to-date effort to broaden the needed discussion on diversity and social justice in group work. The expanded chapter on co-leadership is welcome and informative, especially for students who may find themselves in co-leadership situations. I particularly appreciate the practical and clear examples the authors provide for both beginning and advanced group workers."
Delini M. Fernando, PhD, LPC-S, NCC, associate professor, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Oklahoma
