Drawing from their extensive experience of running children's groups and training group facilitators, Kathryn Geldard and David Geldard outline and discuss the entire process of running a group, including the initial planning and group design assessment of the suitability of children to the group, running the group and the counselling and facilitation skills useful for group leaders, and finally the post-group evaluation. They also look at the benefits and disadvantages of groups, the types of groups available and the theoretical approaches employed in group work.
Filled with ideas, activities, games and work-sheets for use in group programmes as well as examples of complete programmes for particular problems such as domestic violence and low self-esteem, this book will be a resource for anyone wishing to run groups for children.
