Building Effective Collaboration Through Group Work
Crossing Boundaries and Developing Alliances Through Group Work examines how changing technological, economic, and social conditions require social workers to create alliances to better serve their clients. The book addresses how basic principles and techniques of group work can transcend geographical and cultural boundaries when dealing with issues such as HIV/AIDS, parenting, adoption, and sex offenses.
The book examines partnerships between research teams and agencies, collaborations between schools and practice settings, learning communities, service learning, new technologies (teleconferencing, the Internet), and how "mixing and matching" methodologies can produce a more effective intervention strategy.
Crossing Boundaries and Developing Alliances Through Group Work is available for $49.95 (hard cover) or $24.95 (soft cover) from The Haworth Press, Inc., at www.haworthpress.com/store/product.asp?sku=4922.
