This cooperative effort by Barlow, Blythe, and Edmonds is both practical and creatively constructed to assist teachers, therapists, and group workers. The work covers several domains of group development as well as influential variables that may impact upon the overall dynamics of that group. The text presents several non-traditional and creative approaches to problem solving and self discovery for group facilitators to explore. Topics of interest include risk-taking, goal-setting, values clarification and more. From "Icebreakers" to "Self Enhancement", this book is an invaluable source for anyone interested in building a reportiore of interactive activities geared toward increasing general group cohesion as well as individual development within that group.
