The proposed fourth edition of this well-respected text, first published in 1979, will be a timely and thorough revision of the existing material. The book has consistently done well over the years, due in large part to its comprehensive history of group work as a counseling speciality, the practical nature of the authors' explanations, the diversity of sources the authors draw upon to cast the role and history of the group leader, and the international acclaim of Dr. Landreth's work on play and filial therapy.
The authors will revise the text to reflect changes in CACREP and ASGW standards, and update the references to include the most recent developments in the field. They will expand their discussions of theory and co-leadership, include more examples of group dialogue, and adjust the tone to be more reader-friendly.
