Groupwork Practice for Social Workers.pdf
Working with families, carers, groups and communities is something all social work students must prepare for. Written to guide them through these varied and complex groupwork situations, this book explores the knowledge, skills and values required for groupwork practice. Divided into two parts, the first provides students with an understanding of groupwork, its concepts and contexts, while the second takes the student step-by-step through groupwork practice, from planning and preparation, to starting out, facilitating and finally ending work with a group.
