This course will first examine the knowledge base underlying effective practice with different types of social work groups. As these theoretical foundations are reviewed, the practical application of this knowledge will be demonstrated and integrated through small group experiences, class discussion, observation of films, role play, journaling, and other selected course assignments. Becoming aware of self, as well as group process, will be emphasized. Students should expect a strong experiential component, with a combination of challenge and support, in the instructor's approach to education for group work practice.
