With an accessible, personal, straightforward writing style that is unique to best-selling author Gerald Corey, THEORY AND PRACTICE OF GROUP COUNSELING gives students an in-depth overview of eleven group theories-illustrating throughout how to put these theories into practice. Students learn about group process, applications to the stages of a group, and how to apply group counseling to multicultural, ethical, school, and time-limited contexts. Corey guides students in developing their own syntheses of various aspects of the theories discussed in the book. Enhanced with even more applications, as well as updates throughout, the new edition, in combination with a great selection of new and enhanced student and instructor supplements, clarifies theoretical models for students and helps them use these models successfully in group practice.

Review: Theory and Practice of Group Counseling

User Review  - Mahana - Goodreads

Helpful. The student manual also has very useful information, it provides the same information but more concise, and other times has suggestions and recomendations that doesn't appear in the text book. Read full review
