Call for Chapters and Reviewers – Working with Difficult Groups

NCDD member Sandor Schuman emailed me today about a great opportunity I think will interest many of you. Sandy wanted me to let NCDDers know that you are invited to submit proposals for a chapter in the forthcoming book entitled The Handbook for Working with Difficult Groups: How They Are Difficult, Why They Are Difficult, What You Can Do. This is the third in the series of handbooks published by Jossey-Bass/Wiley and the International Association of Facilitators, and edited by Sandy. Chapter proposals are due March 15, 2008.

The framework for the book is described in Chapter 1, which can be found at www.difficultgroups.com. In brief, the framework integrates three high-order factors pertaining to group effectiveness – context, structure, and process – and four perspectives on evaluating group effectiveness – relational, empirical, political, and rational. For the complete call for chapters and reviewers, chapter proposal form, the complete first chapter, and other details, visit www.difficultgroups.com.
