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!
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??
