Case-Based Learning for Group Intervention in Social Work provides essential information on planning and facilitating groups in a clear and easy-to-understand format. Current practice challenges, such as working with people that are mandated to group services and the proliferation of open-ended groups, are taken on directly with an array of strategies. To develop student competency, this volume uses a contemporary pedagogy-case-based learning-as a teaching tool for analysis, application, and decision-making. By working through cases, students gain exposure to the considerable range of populations that can be served by social work group intervention. The text is accompanied by Teaching Notes (available at www.oup.com/us/case-based) to help instructors dive deeply into student responses, whether cases are discussed in the classroom as a whole, in small group activities, or as individual assignments.
