What People are Saying About This

Andrew Malekoff

This book is AN INSTRUCTOR'S DREAM and a practitioner's companion. . . . A ONE-OF-A-KIND, HANDS-ON BOOK to which I give my highest recommendation. Through its thoughtful and simple organization of ideas and illustrations, the reader is afforded the luxury of gradually integrating and synthesizing essential concepts for mutual-aid practice with groups. A multitude of important themes, including determining group goals and norms, group workers' use of authority, addressing conflict in the group, and mutual-aid practice with long- and short-term groups are detailed.

Aaron M. Brower

EXCELLENT. . . . In this new edition, Steinberg extends the application of the mutual-aid approach to four variations of group work: single-session, short-term, open-ended, and very large groups. What I appreciate most in these chapters is Steinberg's continued practice of providing RICH CASE EXAMPLES that demonstrate counterproductive applications of mutual aid in addition to the highly polished ones that appear in most books. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT TEXT FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN LEARNING GROUP WORK AND FOR ANY STUDENT INTERESTED IN LEARNING HOW TO BE A BETTER SOCIAL WORKER.
