The Practical Handbook of Group Counseling is written mainly as a primer to be used in group work with children, adolescents, and parents. The first edition was used by over three hundred colleges and universities in the United States. Its unique design allows the reader to use it as a ready reference for practical information. It is presented as a text that can challenge the individual's ideas and upon which the counselor can develop techniques that will fit his/her personality and meet the needs of the group. The text was the first comprehensive practical book in this field. It is a synthesis of the various problems and successes that the counselor may encounter and offers one model that may be useful in resolving and/or enhancing some of these issues. The author utilizes the public school setting as the vehicle for presenting his material. Since the school is a cross section of the population, the model proposed here can be adapted to other social agencies that utilize group counseling techniques. The author, Dr. Sheldon D. Glass, has a significant background in group work and in child and adolescent development. He is uniquely qualified in this area because he has completed formal training in education, adult psychiatry, child psychiatry, and pediatrics.

This guide offers a wide variety of valid approaches that effectively address client concerns. The book provides therapists with tips and ideas for starting and facilitating a group, assists them through sets of interventions, activities, and assignments, then showcases a variety of interventions for needs-specific populations or problems. Special sections are included with interventions for teens, young adults, couples, and family groups.

Since the First Edition of this book appeared, professors have praised its visual presentation of concepts, accessible writing style, and solid research-based scholarship. PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS is about the ideas and concepts behind the research studies. His straightforward style gets students to contemplate open-ended questions, examine their assumptions, and apply psychological concepts to their own lives. Wayne Weiten surveys psychology's broad range of content with three aims: to illuminate the process of research and its intrinsic relationship to application; to show both the unity and diversity of the subject, and to invite students to the study of psychology by respecting their ability to master its fundamental concepts. Integrative themes--including empiricism, theoretical diversity, sociohistorical contexts, multifactorial causation, cultural heritage, heredity and environment, and subjectivity of experience--are woven throughout the text to provide connections among the different areas of research in psychology. The book's dynamic, teaching-oriented illustration program further enhances these themes. Weiten reinforces concepts through exercises that appear at the end of every chapter. At the same time, the author presents topics in a hierarchical manner, giving students handles they can use to prioritize concepts within the chapter.

This book is a guide to genetic support groups--what they are, how to begin one, how to keep an existing group operating and successful. Because a support group may be started, run, and joined by genetics professionals or laypeople, the text contains information usable by a range of readers. The book opens with a brief discussion of why people seek self-help organizations in general and genetic support groups in particular. The bulk of the text then explains how to organize a genetic support group (getting started, finding a leader), how to sustain the group (developing educational materials and newsletters, conducting a meeting, fund-raising), and how to organize peer support training programs. The authors present examples of existing groups' experiences, sample budgets and news releases, tables and checklists, and other specific information to guide readers.

The world of psychotherapy training has changed dramatically since the First edition of this guide. There have been major organisational changes stimulated partly by the prospect of statutory registration for Psychotherapists, resulting in pressure for unity of standards, ethics and a common voice amongst the umbrella organisations. But there have also been moves towards new organisations that express the standards, values and commitment of partidcular aspect of the work of Psychotherapy. This is illustrated by the creation of the British Confederation of Psychotherapy (BCP), and in the proliferation of courses, each geared to a particular approach, method or patient groups.
