Group Counseling: Strategies and Skills provides readers with a comprehensive exploration of group counseling with emphasis on critical techniques for effective group leadership.

The text is known for being hands-on and reader friendly. It successfully marries traditional theories and concepts with valuable strategies and sage advice that prepares group leaders for impactful practice. Readers also receive access to videos that show leaders demonstrating the skills discussed in the book.

The ninth edition features new content related to the social justice movement as well as leading groups during times of crisis such as the global pandemic that began in 2020. Each chapter has been updated to include learning objectives, information on leading groups virtually, and case studies. The section about leading groups of children and adolescents has been expanded, and references throughout the text have been updated.
