Intentional Group Counseling
The book begins with best practices for intentional group leadership, ethics, cultural competence, and social justice in group work. Later chapters focus on listening and process skills, managing conflict and confrontation, and how to employ interpersonal influence to help clients explore logical consequences, group feedback, and meaningful reflection. The text closes with discussions of alternative theoretical approaches to group work, strategies for working with children and adolescents, and how to develop a personal leadership style.
Designed to help future clinicians prepare to lead diverse populations through effective and profound group sessions, Intentional Group Counseling is ideal for courses in group work, group counseling, social work, and psychology.

“With the notions of intentionality, cultural competence, and social justice foregrounded, this text is a phenomenal resource. Ibrahim and her colleagues masterfully integrate microskills, the group process, and issues of culture and social justice throughout the text. Moreover, by giving the reader the tools to put their learning into action, theory and practice are blended to enhance understanding of group concepts and interventions.”
