Description - Survival in Groups by Tom Douglas
Illustrated throughout with practice-based examples, this book examines the influences and pressures which can exist in groups and explains what to look for in order to see these factors at work. The final chapters discuss methods of integrating personal learning about group outcomes. The text is aimed at the many students of social work, counselling, nursing and social care who are required to participate in groups, but are unclear about what this involves. With its summaries, lists of basic concepts and brief annotated bibliography, the book is also intended to be of use to professionals in the social-care field where teamwork or groupwork is emphasized.
