The fourth edition of this well-respected text, first published in 1979, is a timely and thorough revision of the existing material. Group Counseling has done well over the years, due in large part to its comprehensive history of group work as a counseling specialty, the practical nature of the authors' explanations, the diversity of sources the authors draw upon, and the international acclaim of Dr. Landreth's work on play and filial therapy. This text will provide both novice and experienced counselors with a framework from which to expand their group counseling skills and knowledge.
The book provides a solid grounding in the history and theory of group counseling . . . . The authors have shown great respect for the group processes by providing counselors with much useful information on the methods and techniques of group counseling and on the personal experience of leading a group as well.
