Group Leadership Skills provides a solid foundation for using group concepts, theory, and research with a wide-variety of groups and group settings. The book teaches essential group process skills, including theories, differentiating content from process, working with tension and anxiety, conflict, apathy, and enhancing cohesiveness. Clark also presents strategies to improve effectiveness of group leaders, such as helping groups move to a working phase, solve problems, and build teams.

This updated edition is now newly expanded to apply to a highly diverse collection of groups. The strategies and techniques can be used with students, families, staff, older adults, codependency groups, groups for obesity and eating disorders, depression, rape and sexual abuse groups, domestic violence groups, and many more.
This updated edition:

  • Contains descriptions, tables, and assessment forms that help learners understand and intervene in group situations
  • Presents helpful, simulated group practice situations as well as convenient examples of how to record and analyze group process
  • Includes new section entitled, Group Leaders Speak
  • Includes new feature, Clinical Leader Challenges, which helps group counselors lead formally and informally in clinical settings with staff, therapeutic, task, education, and support groups
