Group Work with Populations at Risk
Group Work with Populations at Risk, Second Edition is a fundamental resource for social workers and those in related health professions. Accessible and practical as well as theoretically sound, it is an essential reference for students and practitioners with little specific training in group work. This extensively revised edition provides tangible techniques and concrete guidelines on applying group work skills to a variety of situations. It is a comprehensive guidebook for those working directly with clients facing social problems or health conditions such as AIDS, cancer, addiction, head injury, divorce, mental illness, or abuse. Specific resources for further study and materials for use with each population are essential chapter components. With new chapters on internet self-help groups, group work with Asian-American immigrants, community and organizational factors, victims of school and community violence, and evidence-based practice, this nuts-and-bolts resource offers students and professionals clear, practical guidelines for applying specific skills and assessment measures to a broad range of group work environments.
