Klappentext

This book organizes group modalities according to mind, body, social, and spiritually holistic approaches, a significant change from the first edition, and makes the text more relevant for practical use than just grouping theories, not all of which are applicable to group work with an aging population. What readers can expect to find are practical, detailed guidelines for how to design, implement, and monitor progress for various types of group modalities that focus on an interactive, multi-model group program as an effective method of dealing with the core issues of isolation and reduced social networks.
