Group Work by Urania E. Glassman

Book Description

This book presents group work 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, belonging, acceptance and support.

Author Biography - Urania E. Glassman

Urania Ernest Glassman, MA, MSW, DSW, LCSW Dr. Glassman's role as director of field instruction spans 30 years. Her social work specializations are field education, group work, and clinical practice. She is currently Principal Investigator of a $1.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services - HRSA for Wurzweiler School of Social Work Yeshiva University to train 2nd year students in clinical field placements with high risk adolescents and transitional age youth. Her recent volume with Sage, Group Work: A Humanistic and Skills Building Approach 2nd Ed., provides underpinning for the training design. Dr. Glassman maintains a long-standing clinical practice with individuals, families, and groups. She has written and presented papers on field education processes and experiential learning, training field educators, group work, and clinical practice. Dr. Glassman served on the Council on Social Work Education Commission on Educational Policy during the time when social work competencies were defined and field education as social work's signature pedagogy was branded. She was instrumental in the development of CSWE's field education symposium - now the field education track, co-founder of NANFED - North American Network of Field Educators and Directors, and of the NYC Red Apple Chapter of the International Association of Social Work with Groups, and has served as chair of these initiatives.
