Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Group counseling is a dynamic and valuable treatment device used by therapists throughout the psychological disciplines, one that has proven effective in promoting change and growth in a variety of populations and settings. The Oxford Handbook of Group Counseling takes an innovative approach to this expansive topic, providing both a comprehensive field manual for practitioners and an authoritative reference work for teachers and researchers.

Comprising 31 topic-based chapters by leading practitioners and researchers, this handbook covers the full spectrum of current and relevant topics in group counseling, including:

- definitions and background

- history and efficacy

- key change processes (e.g., therapeutic factors, group cohesion, group climate)

- group leader strategies and characteristics

- new applications for group counseling strategies, including online groups

- group counseling with special populations

- the future of group counseling

With roots in the most recent and relevant literature, The Oxford Handbook of Group Counseling is an ideal text for training programs (counselor education, clinical psychology, social work, or human services) or as a reference for researchers in counseling psychology. Whoever the reader, it a valuable and comprehensive guidebook for both students and practitioners in the growing practice of group counseling.
