Support Group Paper Assignment Instructions

Overview

After attending four support/self-help group meetings, you will describe your observations of group member and leader behaviors; group dynamics; and meeting content and processes. You will reflect on how your experiences with the group compares to best practices and principles for group counseling and support groups that you have learned about in this course. Your paper must demonstrate critical thinking, literature-supported analysis, and personal application.

Instructions

The paper must be 7–8 pages or about 2,500 words, not counting the title page, abstract, and reference page. Integrate relevant ideas from all required course texts and two scholarly research articles about group counseling in a substantial and meaningful way. Although you may use first person in this paper, it must otherwise be in current APA format and include a title page, running head, abstract, and a reference page. The paper must be submitted as a Word document and be well written; well organized; and free of grammar, spelling, or other writing errors. In the paper’s introductory paragraph, identify the group you attended and the number of participants at each meeting. Then, address the following topics using these headings:

Content and Process

Give a concise description of the topics or themes of the meetings you attended and how the content was incorporated. Discuss the appropriateness of the content and the effectiveness of how it was processed. Provide specific details and examples from the meetings as needed, but do not disclose confidential or identifiable information about group members.

Group Dynamics and Participants

Describe the atmosphere and dynamics of the group, what developmental stage it was in, the level of participation, and how you think members benefitted from this group. (You may find chapter 16 of the Forsyth text helpful for this section.)

Leadership Behaviors

Application and Conclusion
