A-Z of Groups and Groupwork by Mark Doel

Book Description

If you are in need of a clear and compact introduction to the theory and practice of groupwork, then this is the book for you. The A-Z of Groupwork identifies over 70 themes and ideas that, taken together, encapsulate our collective knowledge of groups and groupwork across a range of practice settings. Deft cross-referencing shows the connections between entries, so that you can easily investigate the relationships between ideas, as well as explore different pathways through the material. Straightforward in its language and structure, and packed with the latest academic references, the book is ideally suited for study purposes. Equally importantly, it is written with practice application in mind. Its succinct and accessible style makes it an ideal starting-point for people new to groupwork, but also provides the more experienced practitioner with a perfect gateway into the wider literature. Whether you work, or intend to work, in mental health, adult or children's services, in health, social work, community work or youth work roles, this book should prove an invaluable source of theory, research evidence and reflection.
