 International Group Counseling

Show Summary Details


In this chapter we consider the field of group counseling from an international perspective. Using the broad definition of group counseling provided by Conyne (see Chapter 1 ), we consider small group counseling and therapy as well as other experiences that use group methods and components. An extensive literature research provides a global perspective of group counseling reviewed on a continent-by-continent basis. Five group counseling applications focusing on international indigenous groups are described in some detail. Finally, several suggestions for future direct and further exploration are presented.

Keywords: International; global; group counseling; group work; indigenous groups.
