"I think making the book a workbook is a definite improvement. It breaks the material down into digestible chunks, and offers many points to stop lecturing and have class discussion and opportunities to try out the concepts they are learning. Most of the topics that I thought were irrelevant have been cut out."
"I think the book is a comprehensive and clear look at how social work professionals interact with groups. Zastrow provides a clear explanation of the many types of groups that social workers may encounter or choose to work with. I find the text to be appropriate for undergraduate and graduate social workers."
"The Zastrow text is actually read by students and they like to use the text for the exercises. It is easily adapted to classroom work. It is a good preparation/foundation for their masters' work."
