Most work in the field of Christian leadership has focused on the leader and techniques of management and control. Effective Christian leadership begins with the focus on people and God's purpose for them. With the model of Jesus and His disciples as her starting point, Billie Davis has provided a tool for developing a small group ministry in which members’ strengths and gifts are used to help one another in the biblical sense of Body. Applying an age-level and intercultural approach, Davis examines the structure of groups, how the group influences learning and spiritual development, and the roles people take within groups. Each chapter has self-directed learning exercises and a bibliography of current resources to enhance the reader’s experience.

Human beings are born into groups, educated in groups, and belong to many groups, yet routinely attribute individual motives to their actions when in fact group-influenced behaviors are the more likely culprit. The theory, research, and practice of group dynamics, group psychology, and group psychotherapy illuminate useful ways for us to learn group skills and to better understand how we are influenced by groups. In Specialty Competencies in Group Psychology Sally Barlow provides a comprehensive overview of the foundational and functional competencies related to the field of group psychology. Barlow describes the potential treatment benefits of group work and shows how the wide range of applicability makes this a relevant volume across diverse areas, regardless of the population receiving treatment or the theoretic orientation of the therapist. This volume distills the uniqueness and contributions of the specialty in a way that benefits not only psychologists who specialize in group psychotherapy, but also clinicians who have previously taken a more traditionally individual approach to treatment. Series in Specialty Competencies in Professional Psychology Series Editors Arthur M. Nezu and Christine Maguth Nezu As the field of psychology continues to grow and new specialty areas emerge and achieve recognition, it has become increasingly important to define the standards of professional specialty practice. Developed and conceived in response to this need for practical guidelines, this series presents methods, strategies, and techniques for conducting day-to-day practice in any given psychology specialty. The topical volumes address best practices across the functional and foundational competencies that characterize the various psychology specialties, including clinical psychology, cognitive and behavioral psychology, school psychology, geropsychology, forensic psychology, clinical neuropsychology, couples and family psychology, and more. Functional competencies include common practice activities like assessment and intervention, while foundational competencies represent core knowledge areas such as ethical and legal issues, cultural diversity, and professional identification. In addition to describing these competencies, each volume provides a definition, description, and development timeline of a particular specialty, including its essential and characteristic pattern of activities, as well as its distinctive and unique features. Written by recognized experts in their respective fields, volumes are comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible. These volumes offer invaluable guidance to not only practicing mental health professionals, but those training for specialty practice as well.

Research on small groups is highly diverse because investigators who study such groups vary in their disciplinary identifications, theoretical interests, and methodological preferences. The goal of this volume is to capture that diversity, and thereby convey the breadth and excitement of small group research by acquainting students with work on five fundamental aspects of groups. The volume also includes an introductory chapter by the editors which provides an overview of the history of and current state-of-the-art in the field. Together with introductions to each section, discussion questions and suggestions for further reading, make the volume ideal reading for senior undergraduate and graduate students interested in group dynamics.

This presentation is an attempt to produce a framework out of the knowledge of the growth and development of children and youth for use in determining the school program. This is necessary at a time when education has accepted the objective of secondary education. Educators are in agreement with parents and citizens generally that all youth between the ages of 12 and 18 should attend school. Today, roughly 70 percent of youth of this age group are attending school. It is believed that the dropping out of school at these ages should be reduced. Educators are not making their attack on this problem primarily through increasing the compulsory school age laws to include these ages, rather they are attempting to set up educational programs which will have appeal for youth of these ages so that they will desire to attend school. This is to a considerable extent an unrealized goal for education since a number of youth have been attending school to a considerable extent because of the compulsory school attendance laws and in relation to the strictness with which those laws were being enforced. It is believed that advances in the knowledge of the growth and development of youth enable the set up of procedures which will make possible more complete attainment of this goal. Recently, an attack on this problem has been promoted by the Office of Education under the title of Life Adjustment Education. This bulletin attempts to systematize the fundamental psychological rationale for the direction Life Adjustment Education is taking and to aid in its further development and possible redirection in order that it may more adequately reach its goal. A simplified framework of principles governing the behavior of youth is outlined in this bulletin. This is done by unifying all behavior as of one type--that of making choices of goals and procedures for reaching those goals; by noting that these actions are accompanied by affective states classified as negative, positive, or neutral, and that the problem of education is to keep the balance of the affective influences while the youth is growing up and developing. The task of education consists in providing those activities which develop all potentialities of an individual and by doing so more or less automatically provide the necessary affective or driving force. This bulletin consists of eight sections, as follows: (1) Characteristics of Psychosocial Development; (2) The Motivation Principle in Psychosocial Development; (3) Influence of the Emotions on Psychosocial Development; (4) Frustration; (5) Evidence on the Development of Frustration in the Early Years; (6) Evidence of Frustration in Adolescent Psychosocial Development; (7) The Prevention of Frustrated Behavior through the Educational Program; and (8) Implication for the Educational Program in the Identification and Rehabilitation of Frustrated Individuals. (Contains 3 tables, 11 footnotes, and 15 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.].

The 'anti-group' is a major conceptual addition to the theory and practice of group psychotherapy. It comprises the negative, disruptive elements, which threaten to undermine and even destroy the group, but when contained, have the potential to mobilise the group's creative processes. Understanding the 'anti-group' gives therapists new perspectives on the nature of relationships and alternative strategies for managing destructive behaviour.
