A Systems Approach to Small Group Interaction pioneered the systems approach and is the only book that integrates all important small group topics into a single comprehensive conceptual model. The text also features a unique systematic organization. Each chapter begins with a brief preview, followed by a glossary of terms, a real life case study, and then the chapter text material; next comes several experiential exercises for skill development, and finally the chapter concludes with two original readings.
