Group Action: The Dynamics of Groups in Therapeutic, Educational, and Corporate Settings

Synopsis

"Groups provide a powerful medium for therapeutic work, and are the building blocks of all institutions - whether in the education, health, government or private sectors. Martin Ringer, an internationally known consultant and writer on group psychology, here outlines techniques for understanding groups that will be relevant to those who lead teams in any setting. The result is an accessible guide both to leading a group, and to understanding the necessary dynamics that will result in the best teamwork. Throughout, Martin Ringer uses his wide ranging experiences and an informal style to make his points as accessible as possible to all readers whether or not they have a formal background in group psychology. Rich with new ideas and challenging perspectives, this book is strongly recommended for anyone who wants to improve their ability as a group leader. The author provides basic and fundamental reference points for leaders, whilst also encouraging them to experiment with new approaches." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
