This one-of-a-kind manual provides direction for leading groups of people with disabilities or groups that have members with disabilities. Viewing disability as a single aspect of a multifaceted person, Drs. Bauman and Shaw share their insight and expertise and emphasize practical skill building and training for facilitating task, psychoeducational, counseling, family, and psychotherapy groups across various settings. Topics examined in Part I include common themes in groups that focus on disability; various group formats, including groups using technological platforms; issues of diversity that exist simultaneously with ability; group composition; ethical concerns; and training considerations and logistical accommodations. Part II focuses on group counseling with clients experiencing sensory, psychiatric, cognitive, and physical disabilities as well as chronic medical conditions. A list of resources, support information, and group exercises completes the book. *Requests for digital versions from ACA can be found on  *To purchase print copies, please visit the ACA <><>
