Focusing on the ?what is? and ?how to? of group counseling, the authors use up-to-date examples, guidelines, insights, and an enhanced diversity perspective to show you how group leaders can apply the key concepts of the group process to a variety of groups, including work with children, older adults, and in school settings.|

|"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."
"The new material that addresses cultural issues in group leading has been integrated seamlessly into this new edition."
"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 Corey's are two of the top of the field in group work. This older version does not seem to vary too much from the newer version, but I advise to always check with your professor (as I did) to make sure that he/she does not require the newest version. This book includes chapters relating to different types of groups, groups for different specific populations, multicultural and ethical considerations for group work, theory behind group work, and stages in the group process.
great text book on group dynamics. perfect condition. easy reading if you are in counseling or psychology program.
This book is exactly what I needed for my graduate class. It was helpful and insightful. It was full of facts as well as real scenarios.
this book truly help me out in my counseling class. all of the chapters match even do i thought it was going to be off because how cheap it was. I truly would like to say thanks for providing me with this book.
Required text for MFT- group counseling course. Text is easy to read and subheadings are very clear and organized. Compared to other structured counseling text books, this one is much easier to read.
