“This excellent book addresses group therapy from different theoretical perspectives, discusses both adults and children, and considers cultural issues. It also shows how groups develop and provides clinical examples. It will be helpful to both novice and seasoned therapists.”  (Doody’s, 22 February 2013) 

"Finally, we have a book about group therapy that answers the question, “Is there one book that covers the waterfront but is deep enough to provide more than just an overview of models, and can actually help me become a better group therapist?” This is such a book." (International Journal of Group Psychotherapy, 2013)
