Extremely relevant, comprehensive, and "hands on", SCHOOL BASED GROUP COUNSELING guides readers through the process of developing, running, and evaluating quality small groups in K-12 school settings. Specifically focused on the school counseling profession, it provides an excellent context for group work through a discussion of the pertinent theories and key research. Its real-world emphasis includes K-12 case studies and group examples from practicing school counselors. The authors use the lens of real-world school-based practice, strengths-based counseling, systems thinking, developmental psychology, and ASCA's National Model--resulting in a professional, comprehensive, and well-balanced group counseling text for K-12 preservice school counselors.
