Summary

This state-of-the-art information on social groupwork with children and youth provides theoretical guidelines and suggestions for practice. Each authoritative chapter represents a blending of old and new practice models and syntheses of various knowledge perspectives and emphasizes the subtlety and unpredictability of groupwork. Experts addresses the issues of getting groups started, adapting group programs to the needs of younger school-age children, and using group therapy with young abused and neglected girls. They also include specific observations about the psychic and social developmental characteristics of the age groupings as a guiding factor in choosing group models and intervention techniques. Topics discussed include aspects of group dynamics, group techniques, resistance, stages in group development, and developmental issues of group members.
