The subtleties of counseling are very difficult to accurately express in written form alone. This is particularly true in the case of group work, where the interpersonal dynamics expand geometrically. A good group counseling textbook, such as the fifth edition of Group Counseling: Concepts and Procedures (2013), can provide a solid foundation, but video demonstrations can illustrate the nuances of the group experience in ways that words alone cannot. To provide just such a video, Kevin A. Fall has filmed a series of segments of a group in which he acts as leader with six participants and demonstrates the stages of a group as it moves from first session through termination. Fall offers regular sections of audio commentary, analysis, and processing on each segment, totaling a 120-minute program. The companion workbook provides additional information to fill in what is not shown on the film and includes exercises, activities, and discussion questions related to each video segment. The video and workbook are designed to work seamlessly with the Berg, Landreth, and Fall text, but they can also be used alongside any other group counseling textbook.

More than a recipe book of techniques that group leaders can pull out at the right time, this book encourages readers to use techniques sensitively and creatively in their own groups, and to go one step further to invent their own techniques. The authors draw on their combined experiences as teachers, as consultants to mental-health professionals, and as private practitioners to provide a realistic approach to group work. Emphasizing that techniques are means, not ends, the book is designed to enhance the group leader's ability to generate a therapeutic and human rapport between leader and members.

Group Techniques offers a practical new approach to understanding and implementing a broad range of group techniques. Through the Purposeful Group Techniques Model (PGTM), a generic, flexible conceptual model that can be adapted for use in a variety of contexts, the text demonstrates how group leaders can choose counseling techniques purposefully based on the type of group, the group's developmental stage, and applicable best practice guidelines. Talking through and comparing choices of techniques, along with each person's rationale will provide the very richest of learning experiences. As one result, students will not only learn about how to select and use group techniques but will learn a lot about themselves as people and group leaders. With the help of the model and concrete case-based descriptions of how to lead groups, the text examines counseling, psychoeducation, psychotherapy, and task groups.

Although many types of school professionals may serve as counselors of students, they may not always be aware of the specific skills effective counseling requires. INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP COUNSELING IN SCHOOLS identifies the elements that constitute good counseling practice, and reviews the theoretical and practical aspects of a variety of specific approaches to counseling in school settings. The volume opens with a review of the factors that influence counseling practices in school settings, the types of referral procedures commonly observed, and the provision of counseling as a direct or indirect service. It then offers an in-depth examination of the different stages of counseling at the individual and group levels. Practical guidance is provided on how to: * identify and recruit students for counseling * establish primary goals and objectives * conduct sessions at the individual or group level * and evaluate the effectiveness of the counseling. For those counseling at the individual level, the book features a detailed account of the counseling process from problem identification and analysis, through intervention, to evaluation, encompassing the types of problems best addressed one on one. Also examined are practical issues of implementation, with useful detailed strategies for dealing with common student problems. The section on group counseling reviews both process and content and outlines key steps to establishing and maintaining successful groups. Crucial process skills and practical leader techniques are described in detail. Finally, fundamental ethical and legal issues are given due consideration, with straightforward guidelines delineated for decision making in the school setting. For all school practitioners-- teachers, guidance counselors, administrators, social workers, school psychologists, and consultants who wish to successfully implement counseling interventions-- INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP COUNSELING IN SCHOOLS provides a thorough yet practically oriented review of effective techniques.
