Sage Human Services Guides #65: Group Counseling with Juvenile Delinquents: The Limit and Lead Approach Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A successful group treatment for juvenile delinquents which combines traditional and contemporary influences is described in this volume.

Ferrara discusses the characteristics of delinquents relevant to understanding the value of group approaches, gives practical advice for conducting group sessions and provides a workbook for use directly with group members. Scenarios for role play and a test for evaluating the group's effectiveness for individual members are also included.

Synopsis:

Published in cooperation with the University of Michigan School of Social Work As a counselor or therapist, wouldn't it be useful to have a resource that clearly presents effective how-to guidelines for rehabilitating juvenile offenders? In Group Counseling with Juvenile Delinquents, Ferrara explores all aspects of counseling this special population, from the first group encounter through evaluating the effectiveness of the group. He examines various components of the group encounter including establishing a safe, helpful environment, replacing delinquent behaviors with prosocial ones, and responding to the specific needs of each juvenile delinquent. Included in this valuable volume are key points for conducting group sessions, a workbook and scenarios to use directly with group members, instructions for training staff, and a posttest for evaluating the effectiveness of the groups. There is an extensive and useful discussion of intervention in terms of both traditional, guided group interactions and the more contemporary cognitive behavioral strategies. . . . Much effort has been exerted by Ferrara to insure that the program as presented has a strong empirical foundation. To this end, data and caveates are included as appropriate. As Ferrara wisely notes in his Preface, his program is likely to be most effective with those youths who would not have spontaneously self-corrected but are not seriously disturbed, chronic offenders. Among the various components of the group encounter program, the inclusion of a post-test for evaluating effectiveness is particularly encouraging. --Child & Family Behavior Therapy It is obvious the author is experienced in group counseling of juveniledelinquents, in developing group counseling programs in juvenile correction facilities, and grounded in theories relevant to treating offenders. The book is succinctly and clearly written. -Social Work with Groups
