A practical guide to improving the everyday practice of group work
Establishing a general context and framework for the volumes included in the Group Work Practice Kit, What Is Group Work? presents an inclusive overview of group work in an easy-to-read format. Authors Robert K. Conyne and Leann T. Diederich:

  • Define types of groups
  • Connect with accreditation and/or specialty standards
  • Demonstrate how best practices in group work and attention to diversity and multicultural issues can be used to guide practice
  • Illustrate how key group processes (for example, group cohesion) can be used to mobilize effort
  • Set the stage for translating available group work evidence into group leader practice
What Is Group Work? is part of the Group Work Practice Kit: Improving the Everyday Practice of Group Work, a collection of nine books each authored by scholars in the specific field of group work. To promote a consistent reading experience, the books in the collection conform to editor Robert K. Conyne’s outline. Designed to provide practitioners, instructors, students, and trainees with concrete direction for improving group work, the series provides thorough coverage of the entire span of group work practice.

This book is endorsed by the Association for Specialists in Group Work.
