"The writing is both highly personable and also very specific about techniques and attitudes students may take on as they experiment with membership leadership. I think my students will like it and will use it to engage even more fully with the experiential group. It most certainly fills a niche that needed filling." (Adam L. Hill, Sonoma State University Now Accompanied by a DVD)! Focusing on how to conduct and lead groups in a variety of therapeutic settings, Learning Group Leadership: An Experiential Approach, Second Edition covers theory, process, leadership, techniques, ethics, special populations, and challenges as they relate to group work. The Second Edition introduces important conceptual and practical information and then uses exercises, field study assignments, and personal application questions to help students apply concepts to their work and lives. The Second Edition now includes "student voices" throughout each chapter to provide descriptions of actual experiences. It takes an experiential approach, helping readers understand how the concepts they learn in class can be applied to their own work in conducting groups.
It offers a conversational, practical, and realistic writing style. It includes relevant examples drawn from the authors' more than 25 years of teaching and leading experience. It is accompanied by a new DVD, bound in the back of the book, which contains scripted sessions corresponding with every chapter.
