The topic of this book is groupworking practice from a social work perspective. The book will help readers to understand and develop the knowledge, skills and values required for groupworking in the complex inter-professional care and support environment. Different service contexts (i.e work with children, in mental health settings, with users who have learning disabilities, domestic violence etc.) will be considered across the book, using case study examples, activities and reflective opportunities to draw out the similarities and differences. Readers will gain an in-depth understanding of how groupworking can help vulnerable people address their needs and achieve change in their lives. Addressing theoretical, practical and methodological concerns, alongside a thematic focus on empowerment, user participation and professional development, this book will offers a practical guide for student and qualified social workers.
