Task Groups in the Social Services

In light of the growing importance of and reliance on task groups in the social services, this comprehensive text examines the uses, methods and dynamics of such groups. Following a description of the nature, history and variety of task groups, the authors discuss the role of the social worker in these groups, focusing on: the recruitment and composition of groups; participating as a team member; shepherding a group and dealing with problem behaviours within it.

Task Groups in the Social Services will prove a vital resource to both students and practitioners in social work.
