The New Encyclopedia of Group Activities, CD-ROM Included (1118157559) cover image
This sequel to the hugely successful "Encyclopedia of Group Activities," first published in 1993, comprises 150 brand new group activities organized into five convenient sections: Personal Awareness, Group Process, Communication, Task Functions, Relationship Functions. A sixth section, Miscellaneous, contains additional group activities that explore team working and togetherness. With an emphasis on the practical, these activities can be facilitated with the minimum of fuss and preparation; the pick-and-mix format--each activity works on its own--makes them ideal for use in any group situation, from orientation and team meetings, to structured learning events. This paperback edition provides all the activities that made the binder a popular resource.
