Handbook of Social Work with Groups, 2nd ed. (2017)
Charles D. Garvin, Lorraine Gutiérrez
This definitive text, now revised and expanded, has introduced thousands of students and practitioners to the theory and practice of social work with groups. Leading authorities outline major models of group work and address critical issues in planning, implementing, and evaluating interventions. The Handbook describes applications in all the major practice settings—mental health, prevention, child welfare, substance abuse, health care, aging, corrections, and more—as well as organizational and community settings. A strong focus on empowerment, social justice, and diversity is woven throughout. The empirical foundations of group work are reviewed, and innovative research methods discussed.
