The Group Work Practice Kit is a set of nine slim volumes on the nuts and bolts of doing group therapy/work. The kit will focus on the practical aspects of setting up a group, planning the process and performing group work. Each volume in the kit will have a standard outline which will cover the theoretical aspects of the process, the evidence base and support, the topic highlighted, two real case studies and five short learning exercises. Volumes in the kit will cover how to design a group, how to run a group, how to evaluate a group, and how to deal with special challenges. In addition, two special areas will be highlighted such as groups in schools and groups in communities (most common settings for groupwork). The kit will be endorsed by ACA's Association for Specialists in Group work and will be co-marketed by the group.
