An Experiential Approach to Group Work is not your typical group work text! Using dozens of exercises that build practice-tested skills, the authors' approach is in perfect step with CSWE's competence-based education requirements. The book is organized into three sections-the first addresses stages of group practice, the second looks at major types of groups, and the final section looks at examples of group work practice with special populations.
