What is groupwork?

The answer depends to some extent on the work-setting you have in mind. In Ripples, leading groupworkers introduce the reader to eleven applications.

Assuming little prior knowledge, each each chapter describes the clients'/users' needs, the methods applied and the ideas that guide workers in that setting. Further reading is suggested.

Initiated by the interdisciplinary journal Groupwork, Ripples invites workers to learn from one another, in the belief that the ripples of shared learning can onlystrengthen groupwork practice.

The settings considered are:personal growth
  • palliative care
  • occupational therapy
  • criminal justice
  • social work
  • mental health
  • health promotion
  • schools
  • community-based learning for adults
  • community development
  • social action.
The work will appeal to students on nursing, mental health, social work, probation and education courses who need to acquire an understanding of the uses of groupwork.

Experienced groupworkes will find it a helpful source of information on developments in settings other than their own.
