As part of the Group Work Practice Kit: How to Improve the Everyday Practice of Group Work, this volume details the use of task, psychoeducation, counseling, or therapy groups in community and agency settings. Merchant (community psychology and community counseling, St. Cloud State U.) and Yozamp, a psychotherapist at a partial mental health hospitalization program for adolescents and former clinical manager and therapist in residential treatment at a children's home, focus on prevention groups, groups in remedial treatment settings, and support and self-help groups. They describe what prevention groups are, the use of psychoeducation in prevention, therapeutic factors, best practices, and planning, performing, and processing group dynamics, with an example of a psychoeducational group, then discuss counseling, psychoeducational, and task groups in outpatient, inpatient, and long-term residential treatment settings, and best practices, research on their effectiveness, and examples of a trauma-focused and psychoeducational group. They end with support and self-help groups; how they differ from counseling and therapy groups; their history; types; therapeutic aspects; best practices in planning, performing, and processing; technology-based support groups; effectiveness; and examples of a support group and community outreach referral and education group. They include multicultural and social justice principles and incorporate the Association for Specialists in Group Work professional training standards and its Best Practice Guidelines and Multicultural and Social Justice Competence Principles.
