The first volume to address both self-help and support groups, and to provide a clear distinction between the two, Self-Help and Support Groups dispels misunderstandings and inaccurate assumptions about how they function, whom they attract and how they help participants achieve goals. Linda Farris Kurtz informs practitioners and students in the human services about the concepts, theories and research relevant to self-help and support groups. She provides practical advice and direction for working with these groups while analyzing self-help//support organizations on three different levels in terms of: the groups themselves; the group members; and the practitioners' interactions with the groups. In addition, this compr

Training Sammy

When Professor Kurtz retired, training a dog was the last thing on her mind, but a shaggy, black scamp called Sammy entered her life one day, and her world changed. The story tells how Sammy's new owner civilized his behavior through training at a local dog club. His aptitude for rally obedience enticed her to continue. Sammy, it turned out, was a pretty good competitor, except for his barking; it was Linda who had difficulty learning the sport. They spent an agonizing year attending one trial after another, while Linda gave unclear cues, got lost in the show ring, missed stations, and almost was tossed out of the sport altogether, until she finally began to qualify and earned a fine collect...

Recovery Groups

This book focuses on community self-help and support groups specifically in the context of recovery movements in addiction and mental health care. The idea of groups of recovering people meeting together may seem like a simple one and not one requiring much effort and thought; however, as this book will show, this is not the case. In Recovery Groups: A Guide to Creating, Leading, and Working with Groups for Addictions and Mental Health Conditions Linda Kurtz breaks down the recovery movement for addictions and mental health care into three sections. In the first section recovery concepts are broken down into two fields: how they differ and how they come together. The second section focuses o...

When Bill Wilson, with his friend Dr. Bob Smith, founded Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935, his hope was that AA would become a safe haven for those who suffered from this disease. Thirty years after his death, AA continues to help millions of alcoholics recover from what had been commonly regarded as a hopeless addiction. Still, while Wilson was a visionary for millions, he was no saint. After cofounding Alcoholics Anonymous, he stayed sober for over thirty-five years, helping countless thousands rebuild their lives. But at the same time, Wilson suffered form debilitating bouts of clinical depression, was a womanizer, and experimented with LSD. Francis Hartigan, the former secretary and confidan...

Group Work Practice to Advance Social Competence

Small social groups are fundamental to personal growth, social development, socialization, and acquiring the skills of sustaining relevance, relationships, and connections to society. Unfortunately, those who might benefit most from small groups often find themselves unable to achieve membership. Lacking the necessary social skills for entry into groups, these socially disabled individuals may never enjoy the advantages of membership. Advancing a practice methodology that specifically targets the socially unskilled, Norma Lang gives much-needed guidance to practitioners struggling to help individuals become part of group life. Grounded in extensive practice, Lang's methodology addresses the ...
