In this exciting video with accompanying workbook (designed for student purchase as an interactive tool), students will see Marianne and Jerry Corey in action as they demonstrate their integrative approach to group work. As the two-hour video unfolds, viewers will see a real group-not actors role-playing-move through its various stages and will observe group members discuss real issues and present reactions in the group context. The accompanying student workbook provides exercises and explorations that link the video to the Coreys' best selling group books: GROUPS: PROCESS AND PRACTICE, GROUP TECHNIQUES, and THEORY AND PRACTICE OF GROUP COUNSELING (both the textbook and the Student Manual). This compelling video was filmed at a three-day intensive group and shows the unfolding of a live group as they build "a circle of trust." The video highlights the development of the group process by showing segments of the group work that occurred over the three-day session. Throughout the video, the Coreys demonstrate a wide variety of techniques and skills, including: how to deal with members' hesitation and resistance, their feelings of not being "good" enough, their fears of being judged, their difficulties with intimate relationships, and their unresolved issues with parents. In addition, the Coreys demonstrate how to recognize and work with interpersonal group conflict and how to "link" members and get them to work effectively with one another.
