Using a plentiful selection of skill-building and self-evaluation exercises, Zastrow and Hessenauer's workbook-style text promotes the philosophy that students learn group leadership skills best by practicing them in class. In SOCIAL WORK WITH GROUPS, 10th Edition, the authors discuss topics that are central to understanding group leadership: stages of groups, group dynamics, verbal and nonverbal communication, types of groups, and diversity in groups. They also focus on helping students acquire the competencies and practice behaviors of the 2015 EPAS. With support from this book, your classroom becomes a lab where students can experience what it's like to work in and lead many kinds of groups. Updated throughout with timely new topics and firsthand accounts from experienced social group work professionals, this edition also emphasizes the importance of social workers' self-care. .
