Groupwork Practice in Social Work Summary

Groupwork Practice in Social Work by Trevor Lindsay

Both the new social work degree and Post-Qualifying Award in social work require that students are competent at working with groups and such skills are also valuable in interprofessional practice, partnership working and within the social care workforce. This accessible book introduces the practicalities of planning, establishing, facilitating and evaluating social work projects and contains common-sense guidance on setting up, facilitating and closing small helping, interprofessional and other groups. The reader is introduced to the relevant skills, stages and decisions in groupwork and guided through what to do when things seem to be going wrong.
