Groups in Action Evolution and Challenges Workbook (with CourseMate Printed Access Card and DVD), 2nd Edition

In these exciting videos, available on DVD, students will see Marianne and Gerald Corey in action as they demonstrate their integrative approach to group work. Viewers will see a real group move through its various stages and will observe group members discuss real issues and present reactions in the group context. These compelling videos were filmed at a three-day intensive group and show the unfolding of a live group as they build “a circle of trust.” The videos highlight the development of the group process by showing segments of the group work that occurred over the three-day session. Throughout the video, the Coreys demonstrate a wide variety of techniques and skills, including how to deal with members’ hesitation and resistance, their feelings of not being “good” enough, their fears of being judged, their difficulties with intimate relationships, and their unresolved issues with parents. A new addition to these videos is a series of lecturettes featuring Dr. Gerald Corey. The accompanying workbook provides students with exercises and explorations directly linked to the videos and the book GROUPS: PROCESS AND PRACTICE.
