“The journal Groupwork, first published in 1988, has been a specialist reference source for practitioners and, arguably, the principal location within the United Kingdom for the development of groupwork theory, dissemination of groupwork research and evolution of groupwork practice.”
(Professor Michael Preston-Shoot)

This book is the first title in the Groupwork Monographs Series. Each of the books in this series is an anthology of groupwork papers dedicated to one theme within the area of groupwork practice. The books can be used in a number of ways: Practitioners may draw on the ideas when considering their planned and current practice.
  • Students may explore this pool of knowledge when expanding their understanding of groupwork.
  • Teachers and trainers of groupwork may choose papers that direct their students to certain features of this method.
  • Researchers may look for references that are still relevant to their particular area of study.
All are invited to sample a pool of knowledge that has accumulated within the pages of Groupwork over almost two decades.
