Grounded in investigations conducted over the past 25 years, Adolescents’ Self-Discovery in Groups demonstrates how adolescents can become more active in society based on how they form, maintain, and evaluate groups. By collaborating with youth in a wide range of communities, Thorkildsen details the trajectory of adolescents’ development—from a primarily self-oriented perspective to beliefs about and participation in local and global activities. Focused especially on the potential of schools for catalyzing this development, this volume details youth’s affirmations and critiques of educational practices, and uses these evaluations to illustrate adolescents’ readiness to fulfill leadership responsibilities. Written for scholars, students, and professionals seeking to understand how adolescents construe their social worlds, Adolescents’ Self-Discovery in Groups makes a powerful case for group interaction being central to adolescent development.

Journaling isn't just for adults. Many teens and pre-teens chronicle their lives and express themselves through journaling. They lament relationships gone wrong, fume about unjust treatment at the hands of parents and other authority figures, and celebrate victories both in and out of school. In the language of teens, they "get their feelings out", a proven benefit to emotional well-being. Unlike the ordinary blank-paged journals found in book stores and gift shops everywhere, this teen journal is carefully crafted by an expert in adolescent therapy. In addition to plenty of blank pages for self-expression, there are questions to ponder and answer that promote self-discovery and growth. Appealing cartoons and "Doodle Pages" make the journal come alive. The savvy eleven-year-old, defiant fourteen-year-old and shy sixteen-year-old will be intrigued and challenged. "Journal: A Guide to Self-Discovery and Growth" may be an adolescent's best friend. Parents, aunts, cousins, friends and others who are looking for a present for graduation (from elementary or middle school), birthdays, religious rites of passage, Christmas and other religious holidays, as well as occasional gifts of encouragement or celebration will be delighted to find and purchase the Journal. And of course, teens will buy it themselves, for themselves!

First published in 1979, Group Counseling has consistently been a widely used and praised text, providing both novice and experienced counselors with a framework from which to expand group counseling skills and knowledge. This revised sixth edition offers a reader-friendly and engaging journey through the group process that is congruent with 2016 CACREP standards and the Association for Specialists in Group Work (ASGW) practice standards and grounded in the most cutting-edge research and theory. The authors present a thorough discussion of the rationale for using group counseling with an emphasis on the group's role as a preventive environment and as a setting for self-discovery. They examine the group facilitator's internal frame of reference and ways to overcome initial anxiety about leading groups, and they also explore typical problems in the development, facilitation, and termination of the group process and provide suggested solutions. Individual chapters are included to explore the application of group counseling with children and adolescents. Notable additions include: an expanded chapter on diversity and social justice in group work; an expanded chapter on co-leadership, a topic often ignored in other group counseling texts; a new chapter on ethics and leadership training; a reworked chapter on leader functions, styles, and skills; and a reworking of the chapter on group counseling with children that includes an in-depth look at Landreth's innovative and empirically validated Child-Parent-Relationship Therapy.
