Learning Group Leadership: An Experiential Approach equips readers with the basic information, theory, concepts, research, interventions, and guidelines required to help them develop into effective group leaders within a variety of settings. The book contains several pedagogical features to facilitate learning and improve the student experience.
Reflection Prompts challenge the reader to engage in independent or group-centered reflection to cultivate a deeper understanding of self in relation to key concepts throughout the book.
Field Study Prompts challenge students to venture beyond the classroom to ask questions, engage with practitioners in the field, and learn through exploration and practical application.
Personal Application Prompts provide ample opportunities for students to draw practical connections between the material within the book and their everyday lives.
Class Activities support lively discussion and meaningful group learning experiences within the classroom.
Student Voices serve to illuminate challenges, successes, and experiences students often face when they embark upon running their first groups. The vignettes help readers understand that much of what they experience when first running a group is very common. These scenarios also provide examples of how others have overcome key challenges and grown to succeed as group leaders.
