Received the book, does not differ from other editions. Maybe slight deference. However, in overall the book is in good condition with few markings but it was worth the price. The price was amazing.

Counseling groups? You probably need this! Aug. 8 2005
By Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Written in Jacobs's usual concise, never boring, and yet easy to read style, this informative text concerning group counseling provides all of the information a qualified counselor needs to plan, develop, and facilitate groups effectively. Jacobs's introduces group concepts within the integrative framework of Impact Therapy, a dynamic approach to counseling, incorporating theory and creative techniques, that he developed. His style, while not for everyone, provides the tools that a courageous counselor well-versed in theory can use to facilitate client movement.

I have studied with Dr. Jacobs, and so quickly realized these are the very same techniques he uses to run his Theories and Techniques classes. I know they work because there is never a moment in class that feels wasted, and it is never boring. My experience has been that class is generally over long before you want it to be.

Recently, I was developing a group proposal as a requirement of a group counseling class I took this summer. I had read the Corey book on groups, had the benefit of a semester's worth of lectures, had been through 40 or 50 additional publications/articles. I had all of this information and I had an idea, and yet I was struggling on exactly how to go about putting this proposal together. I had recently received the Jacobs book, but only had time to read the first couple of chapters, so I picked it up, flipped to the chapter on planning groups, and withing 20 pages my pen was flying as I scribbled notes organizing my project. Two chapters later, all I had left to do was type the formal proposal.

The book is filled with practical ideas presented in an uncomplicated manner that allows for immediate practical application. I highly recommend it!

This book is the best textbook. It is actually the first one I have read cover to cover. It will be a great resource and is exactly the same as the new edition! Thanks!

Worth the money saved to get an older edition for class but... Jan. 22 2013
By Gloria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is great of course, but I bought this older edition instead of the 7th edition to save money for class. The editions are VERY similar but I thought people should know that ethical considerations have been added to chapter 1 and that a new chapter has been added in the last half of the book about using/applying counseling theories. I had to buy the CourseMate add-on for class so I could still use the eBook to read the stuff the 4th ed was lacking. Overall they were pretty much the same, and worth the money saved since I paid $6.

Wrong edition!!!!! And no one will contact me back! Sept. 25 2010
By Jenn.M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I did not see the word international edition until it arrived in the mail
I contacted the company and they never responded back. I will never buy from this seller again.
It did however arrive in perfect condition sealed. So, it is a new book but I do not need international version and it said it cannot be bought in America, so how could I order it??

I highly recommend this book for counselors who are engaged in group counseling. It helps guide you through the process of group counseling. It gives great recommendations from how to pick the group members to different types of groups and techniques.
