Social Work Practice: Groups and Organisations

  • Peter R. Day
Part of the Practical social work series book series (PSWS)


A wide variety of situations may call for the application of group work ideas. Family interviews, meeting with three or more people in a waiting room or in the street, at school or at work, tenants or neighbourhood groups, recreational activity groups, social clubs and many others constitute likely settings. They all involve interaction between individuals. A social worker involved in these situations will need to understand and use the exchanges between people rather than just his or her own relationship with each of them individually.
