The Group Work text designed by DDE Media truly captures the essentials of group work without the overburden of discussing history or lengthy explanations of social theory. We use this text for an 80-hour Group Dynamics course, and it is a perfect balance of theory and practice. The exercises are creative and lend themselves to actively learning the materials. Students find the course fun and enlightening; they often end with a greater appreciation of what group work can help them accomplish in social services. Included in the text is an overview of support/therapeutic groups, which is often over looked in other mainstream texts that cater to business or other professions. From learning how to maximize cooperative group structure to learning how to lead groups, this text provides the perfect amount of information to the adult learner.
