Group Work Practice in a Troubled Society by Association for the Advancement of Social Work with Groups Symposium 1

Book Description

This book presents the wide range and diversity of effective group work practice in today's troubled society. Representing the best in current practice, chapters discuss modern group work and contain rich examples of practice and theory. Group Work Practice in a Troubled Society examines the social realities in which group work is now practiced and addresses present-day social issues and problems. Contributing authors to Group Work Practice in a Troubled Society discuss innovations in practice, programs, and theory, and a wide variety of work with clients in many different settings. There is a breadth and strength and diversity in contemporary group work practice, and the authors--practitioners and educators from the United States, Canada, and Hong Kong--represent the vitality of current practice and theory. Among the many topics they discuss are: * contextual group work practice * latent content in work with groups * group work in administration * cultural sensitivity and diversity in small-group practice * group work in other cultures and with immigrant populations * feminist group work and unique considerations in work with women's groups * group work with sexually abused children, with incest survivors, and with sexual offenders * group work in community centers * group work with mentally ill chemical abusers * group work use in an innovative 12-step modality Group Work Practice in a Troubled Society provides a wealth of information and ideas for social workers and students of social work who are interested or involved in group work and who wish to learn more about current practice and developments in the field.
