Our bibliography of books, journal articles and other resources has been newly expanded and reorganised, and it’s proven so popular that we’ve decided to spin it off into a new site.
A mainstay of our resources when CounsellingResource.com was first being developed in 2002, our annotated research bibliography has now grown to include many hundreds of entries summarizing important books and articles from across the field. The bibliography has grown to be so extensive that we now just provide an index to it, while the main collection itself now occupies around 100 pages at its own site, CounsellingBooks.com.

All clinical material on this site is peer reviewed by one or more clinical psychologists or other qualified mental health professionals. This specific article was last reviewed or updated by Dr Greg Mulhauser, Managing Editor on .

This chapter reviewed many different aspects of group work such as different processes and skills required to run several different groups. The groups discussed were open-ended group, groups hosted in residential settings, single-session groups, and large activity groups.
