Form groups that empower growth, learning, and change. Drawing on the latest research on group work, this accessible book will help you master key concepts and skills. Providing insightful coverage of diversity and multicultural issues, How to Form a Group focuses on all aspects of forming an effective group, including: strategies for overcoming environmental roadblocks to group formation, such as agency staff lack of support for groups; key practices to consider when organizing groups; practical guidance on how to attract the "right" members to the "right" groups; concrete suggestions for organizing, marketing, recruiting, screening, selecting, and composing groups; and differentiation between groups that are remedial in purpose from those that are more preventive in scope. How to Form a Group 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.
