This standard text has stood the test of time, and is still in demand, 15 years after its first publication. It shows what works to help people identify what is wrong in their lives and how they can bring about change. Social and community workers, teachers, youth workers, community nurses, and workers in faith-related settings helped develop the approach and will be keenly interested in the ideas contained here.
... a most important book which should become required reading for intended and experienced groupworkers alike. ... it describes an approach to groupwork developed and refined in practice and challenges much traditional thinking ... this practice paradigm is firmly rooted in an analysis of oppression, power and change and in clearly articulated values which inform a commitment to empowerment, anti-oppressive methods of work and social change. Issues in Social Work Education
Self Directed Groupwork will soon be back in print in both the UK and N America (N American price US$75.00).
