"Readable, engaging, and thoroughly grounded in theory and experience, this clear, practical text is presented in a straightforward yet thought-provoking manner. Group Work with Adolescents is one of those rare texts that students will enjoy reading! The third edition contains important contemporary content on adolescent brain development, the use of newer group work interventions such as mindfulness and animal-assisted therapy, and the important role of social media in the life of today's adolescent."--Shirley R. Simon, MSW, LCSW, School of Social Work, Loyola University Chicago
"A very welcome addition to the literature. Malekoff identifies the assets and challenges that young people experience in contemporary society and offers group work as a current and apt approach to address them. Groups are justly presented as safe spaces for adolescents to celebrate cultural diversity in all its forms--in terms of sexual orientation, ability status, gender, and race and ethnicity--and to become engaged in their own healing and the transformation of their environments. The third edition comes alive through up-to-date research findings, discussions of alternative group modalities, and new case studies. The content is fresh and highly relevant for practitioners and students."--Flavio F. Marsiglia, PhD, Distinguished Foundation Professor of Cultural Diversity and Health, School of Social Work, Arizona State University
"Writing with eloquence, artistry and heart, Malekoff takes the mystique out of group work. This is the best book I have read about how to engage and build trusting relationships with adolescents. The third edition masterfully describes how to integrate mindfulness into group work, among other new topics. It is perfect for new practitioners and will rekindle the creativity of those with extensive experience. Malekoff brings practice to life in this book."--Ariel Allena Botta, MSW, LICSW, Director of Group Psychotherapy, Department of Psychiatry, Boston Children's Hospital
"I currently use Group Work with Adolescents in my undergraduate as well as graduate-level classes that address planning strategies, growth and development, and programming when working with youth. Malekoff does a wonderful job of synthesizing the goals of youth workers with the uniqueness of adolescent life. He has developed ideas and concepts that students who have graduated from our program use in their daily work."--Christopher Kowalski, EdD, Division of Leisure, Youth, and Human Services, University of Northern Iowa
"Malekoff speaks directly to the adolescent group worker who is willing to push back against the assumption that life is simple and teenagers are complicated. He recounts the truth about what it is like to give yourself over to a group of teenagers, ingeniously describing the combination of dynamic energy (chaos and mess), interpersonal banter, and creativity (poetry, music, dancing) that actually takes place when you leave your ego at the door. Page after page, Andy walks the walk and keeps it real. Each chapter provides a combination of inspiration, understanding, and creative possibilities--just what adolescent group workers need."--Katrina Skewes McFerran, PhD, Head of Music Therapy, University of Melbourne, Australia
