Through a plentiful selection of skill-building and self-evaluation exercises, author Charles Zastrow’s comprehensive, workbook-style text promotes his philosophy that students learn group leadership skills best when they can practice them in class. Teaching social work students how to lead and participate effectively in groups are challenges. The basic assumption of this text is that the best way for students to learn how to run groups is by leading groups in class. The classroom thus becomes a laboratory for students to practice and develop their leadership skills. In this eighth edition of SOCIAL WORK WITH GROUPS: A COMPREHENSIVE WORKBOOK, Zastrow discusses topics central to a successful understanding of group leadership: stages of groups, group dynamics, verbal and nonverbal communication, types of groups, and diversity in groups. A major theme of this edition is to provide text content and skill-building exercises that focus on helping students acquire the 10 Competencies and 41 Practice Behaviors of the 2008 EPAS (Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards) of the Council on Social Work and Education (CSWE).
