Learning Group Leadership: An Experiential Approach equips readers with the basic information, theory, concepts, research, interventions, and guidelines required to help them develop into effective group leaders within a variety of settings. The book employs an experiential approach, encouraging readers to apply what they learn to common scenarios in their personal and professional lives.

In the fourth edition of this popular, student-centered, and practical text students first explore the foundations of group work, studying concepts related to group dynamics, multicultural dimensions, key approaches to group intervention, and more. Part II focuses on the skills a group leader must possess in order to lead effectively. Specific topics include group assessment, specialized leadership skills, intervention, and group techniques and structures. In Part III, readers learn how to handle and address coleadership, critical incidents, and the ethical issues. The final section examines advanced group leadership challenges and techniques, including working with difficult members, employing creative interventions, and the application of group leadership to social justice and social action initiatives.

The new edition of Learning Group Leadership features updated references and materials drawn from cross-disciplinary fields on group dynamics, increased focus on social justice and advocacy in group settings, numerous activities and reflection exercises, and emphasis on the student experience of being in a group and the early stages of becoming an effective group leader.

This text is a valuable resource for courses in counseling, social work, psychology, human services, health professions, and education, or any course with a focus on effectively leading groups.
