New Releases. Description There has been a strong recent trend towards incorporating evidence into Social Work practice in general, and into group work in particular. This trend has focused on the education of students in the use of evidence, development of evidence-based interventions, and discussion of how evidence can be used to improve practice.
A limitation of most of this literature is that it has been written by researchers for the consumption of practitioners, limiting the ability of evidence-based practices to be incorporated into unique community settings and with specific populations. In spite of this difficulty, implementation of evidence-based practices continues quietly in practice settings. This book describes efforts to integrate evidence into community settings, which have two foci.
The first part details group models developed through collaborations between researchers and community agencies. Each chapter details efforts to implement, research, or review programs in community settings.
Recent books and special journal issues have been dedicated to helping practitioners to integrate best available evidence into practice. This entry provides a comprehensive list of sources related to group work research, best practices, and evidence-based group work, with an emphasis on publications since The entry begins with material on the utilization and application of research by practitioners. Specifically, there is a presentation of standards for the practice of group work, followed by sections on evidence-based group work and on practice evaluation.
These are followed by a section on conducting formal research on group work. The entry also includes a guide to the major group work journals.
There are nine peer-reviewed scholarly journals in print, representing a range of emphases. The group work journal from a clear social work perspective is Social Work with Groups. Group Analysis focuses on psychotherapy, whereas Group Dynamics applies a scientific understanding to group work topics.
Group Processes and Intergroup Relations focuses on group and intergroup phenomena. Journal of Groups in Addiction and Recovery has material related to groups in addiction and recovery. Small Group Research brings together research that probes all aspects of small-group functioning.
All journals publish qualitative and quantitative research, including mixed methods, with various levels of rigor. Also included is a section on the dissemination of research; that is, publishing in group work journals.
