The fifth edition of Group Leadership Skills provides a solid foundation for using group concepts, theory, and research with a wide-variety of groups and group settings.

The strategies and techniques can be used with students, families, staff, older adults, codependency groups, groups for obesity and eating disorders, depression, rape and sexual abuse groups, domestic violence groups, and many more.
