Group Counseling: Strategies and Skills, Eighth Edition, provides an in-depth

look at group counseling with an emphasis on practical knowledge and

techniques for effective group leadership. For this edition, we are excited to include

additional videos that bring to life the skills presented in this textbook. For

the seventh edition we made 43 short videos showing specific skills. The new

clips show an integration of many skills and techniques. The book and video

clips are for counselors, social workers, psychologists, and others who are leading

groups in a variety of settings.

  • Bridge the gap between theory and practice.
  • Present a sophisticated how-to approach for both beginning students and experienced practitioners.
  • The purpose of the text and videos is to integrate traditional theories and concepts of group process with thoughtful strategies and specific skills.
