Product Description


'The author does a commendable job of taking what is known about groups, the unconscious, and psychodynamics in an academic sense, and grounding it in relevant experiential education examples. This book is appropriate for intermediate and advanced practitioners who want to stretch their own thinking about group processes and group management. Ringer's text provides a good bridge between academic journals (and contains an abundance of quality citations) and practical application related to group leadership...I [found] it engaging and thought provoking.' - Journal of Experiential Education 'Martin Ringer...offers explanations of group processes with examples (both extensive and quite brief) that illustrate both concepts and strategies. Also a rare phenomenon, he positively encourages readers to relax their concentration on the written word and to think, make associations and learn by reflection on their own experiences of being leaders and members of groups.' -Leadership & Organization Development Journal 'It gives huge assistance to a thinking group-worker...[it] brings alternative viewpoints and slants of lighting that open up familiar territory in fresh and stimulating ways...worth the read' -ANZPA 2002

Good book if you want to incorporate the importance of experiential learning in group facilitation. Can be a bit challenging to read.
