Drawing from the author's vast experience as teacher, researcher, and practitioner, Lawrence Shulman's Dynamics and Skills of Group Counseling offers solid coverage of methods for effective group counseling--giving clear guidance to clinical group workers across the helping professions. Guided by theory, empirical research, and his own group practice, Shulman brings concepts to life with vivid cases that include "Record of Service" reports and dialogue from actual groups. These illustrative examples connect theory to current practice while addressing the day-to-day realities of leading counseling groups. Extremely practical, the book presents a clear format on how to run a group built around four phases of work: the preliminary (preparatory) phase; the beginning (contracting) phase; the middle (work) phase; and the ending and transition phase. It also shows how these lessons can be applied to a wide range of settings.
