How Personal Growth and Task Groups Work
Focusing on `normal' rather than clinical populations, this book presents an account of how practitioners can develop effective groups. Two major categories of groups are explored: } task groups (such as committee groups) for solving problems and accomplishing tangible goals, and } personal groups (such as psychotherapy groups) for achieving individual change and developing interpersonal skills. The author utilizes two extensive examples or `stories' throughout to demonstrate the applicability of his conceptual framework for group facilitation.
