Zastrow's book is a rich resource and hands-on guide that students like to keep for future reference. This ten-part book has each chapter module broken down into a particular format. First, the goal of the chapter is stated; then the chapter provides the theoretical material for the class; and then, exercises are given to illustrate the key concepts in the chapter. Students are encouraged to break into groups and lead the class in the exercises - the class then becomes a lab for students to learn how to work in and lead all kinds of groups.

Editorial Reviews

This text allows instructors to use the classroom as a laboratory where students learn to lead therapeutic, self-help, stress management, educational, and other types of groups. Each chapter begins with a stated goal, followed by theoretical material on how that goal can be achieved. Interactive group exercises, specifically designed for classroom use, give students practical experience in applying theoretical concepts. This fifth edition features new content on ethnic-sensitive practice, increased focus on the strengths perspective, and material on online self-help groups. The author teaches social work at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
