Actual failures in group work are examined in this book, as are the ways in which group leaders learnt from their mistakes, transforming failure into success.

Two chapters are devoted to each major type of group work: task groups; psychoeducational groups; counselling groups; and psychotherapy groups. In each case study presented, Robert K Conyne covers the background, focuses on the group leadership functions of planning, performing and processing, and analyzes the major elements of the case.

Industry Reviews
