Editorial Reviews

Review

"What I really like about the 7th edition is the additions to the text seem to come from the authors' experience as group leaders or as counselor educators. For example, the futher explanation of the types of anxiety a client may feel (of sounding 'not intelligent', of being overcome by intense emotions, etc.) seem to come from feedback given to the authors from actual clients or counselors-in-training."

"The new material that addresses cultural issues in group leading has been integrated seamlessly into this new edition."

"I found the current manuscript to be well written, practical (while citing a variety of examples), informative (while including updated research), and encouraging to me as a practitioner. The integration and emphasis of a multicultural perspective throughout the text enlightens the reader about the importance of being sensitive while working with diverse populations. The authors have succeeded again in sharing the wisdom of their many years of group experience as counselor educators and practioners to further the professional development of neophyte or beginning counselors, as well as seasoned group counselors in a variety of settings."

"I have reviewed a couple other group texts and I like this one (and use it in my group counseling course) because it covers all the essential elements of group counseling without getting heavily bogged down in theoretical excess.' Also: 'The self-assessments, thought questions and inventories are valuable and a hallmark of Corey texts. The exercises in each chapter are great and I have successfully used them with my students. The scenarios are appropriate and relevant to what students are bound to encounter as they work with group members and they have not only stimulated an environment where I can point out concepts and dynamics from my lectures, but they actually act as a springboard for the work that students might do in their experiential group."

"Regarding Evolution of a Group Video: 'It is probably the best group therapy video on th marketing regarding its teaching usefulness. Whether the accompanying text is used or not in conjunction with the video, the video itself is a very important addition to teaching group therapy to students."

This book was okay. It is well-written and fairly easy to read. It was required for our group counseling course (grad-level), which is for both clinical mental health and school counseling students. This book definitely is geared towards the therapeutic group rather than a school group. We were told that it is the best group book out there.

We also watched the dvd during the course. It does a nice job showing what a therapeutic group can/should look like at each stage; however, I do wish they had just followed one or two people through the dvd because it was hard to actually see the growth in the participants due to editing.

I'm using this book in a graduate level counseling course and I think it is terrible. The authors write in circles; there is way too much rambling compared to an actual point being made. It feels like the authors jumped around within each chapter. Most chapters repeat the same information over and over in the exact same context, just phrased a little differently each time. I love group therapy, but this is an awful textbook.

I do not plan to counsel or work with groups in therapy. This book was okay and nothing really fancy to discuss. I think it served its purpose and nothing more. You definitely walk away understanding the dynamics of working with groups.

I found the information from one chapter to the next to be pretty redundant. I think they definitely could have streamlined this text a lot and made it significantly shorter. The DVD was helpful, but it would have been nice if it focused on one or a couple of individuals within the group to see the growth occurring.

This is the most comprehensive and complete book for group counselors. The writing is interesting and less like a textbook and more genuine. If you work with groups, this is a must for your personal library!

I love this book! The Coreys are exceptional writers with exciting and innovating ideas to share. If you only buy one book on this subject, it should definitely be this one! And if you ever come across this book in a "bundle" with Groups in Action workbook and DVD buy it immediately, the DVD alone is incredible!

book auto extention indicated as of 6/15 (15 days extension) I was charged full price of book prior. The way it is worded is unclear and customer service basically admitted wording is confusion but nothing can be done. Such a large company and they cannot assist in anyway. Never renting books from Amazon or RentU again.
