- We can order this
School counselors are often the only employees in school settings with any formal education in group work, and yet their training is typically a general course on how to run groups. Group Work in Schools provides an alternative training model; one that presents exactly what counselors need to know in order to successfully implement task-driven, psychoeducational, and counseling/psychotherapy groups in any educational setting. Additions to this newly updated second edition include: discussion topics, activities, case examples, integrated CACREP standards and learning outcomes, as well as an overall update to reflect the most recent research and knowledge.

"Edited by Brad Erford, a prominent counselor educator and former ACA president, this second edition of Group Work in Schools is a comprehensive book that addresses pertinent issues that graduate students as well as professionals in the field will find exceptionally relevant and informative as they apply the information in various group settings. The text is very well-written, with up-to date research and practical 'how to's.' Each of the 18 chapters thoroughly addresses the designated topic in such a way that readers will readily understand the concepts, and the emphasis on ethics, accountability, and outcomes augment the more specific information about other aspects of group work."

The material is coherent and well integrated, and each chapter is competently edited. (...) To its credit, this book, which is devoted to face-to-face groups, provides enough material for the reader to apply to practice."
