Group Work With Populations at Risk , Third Edition is a fundamental resource for practitioners in health and mental health settings and a comprehensive guidebook of group work skills. Geared toward students and professionals gaining a beginning understanding of groups, this volume describes how to work with vulnerable populations that include returning war veterans, Latino and Latina immigrants, women and men who were abused as children, children of divorce, and people struggling with substance abuse, AIDS, cancer, or chronic mental illness. Each chapter describes the population and reviews the relevant literature, identifies themes and practice principles, presents a case illustration, provides evaluation guidance, and refers readers to key references and web resources. Each one is designed to stand alone for easy reference, and overviews of skill building and evidence-based practice make this a timely, comprehensive resource for group leaders regardless of specialty.

From the Publisher
" essential guide for current and future group work practice."—Social Work With Groups

"...a useful tool for social work educators and practitioners. The volume would make an excellent companion reader for a course in group work and would communicate to students the breadth of application of group work techniques in practice. The book would also be of use to group work practitioners who are interested in expanding their work with specific populations at risk. The chapters are short, well written and referenced, and geared toward practitioners need for specific knowledge."—Families in Society
