This book presents groupwork under the framework of a humanistic approach, which lends itself particularly well to working in groups. The underlying concept behind the humanistic approach is rooted in humanism and democratic principles, thus that people within a democracy are responsible to themselves and to their society. As applied to the therapeutic group environment, the author applies humanistic values of the individuals responsibility for others, caring, mutual aid, respect for others and differences, and inclusiveness to the group and fosters an environment of trust, beloging, acceptance and support.
