Groupwork in Australia (Paperback)
This book is the first of several collections surveying the practice of group work in Australia embracing a range of settings, theoretical approaches and client groups. It is above all a book by practitioners for practitioners and for those who are interested in developing and sharing their skills. It is a not for profit publication with authors driven by their passion for the work. In beginning our Australian survey, we have started from where we are based, in and around Sydney. Future volumes will extend this reach to other parts of Australia.
