Evaluation of group processes: Identify the type of group. Discuss to what extent you were able to assess group organization and goals.
Application of ethics: Was confidentiality
discussed or reiterated at the onset of the group meeting? Was the
setting appropriate to facilitate confidentiality?
Effective group facilitation: Some support and
self-help groups are led by volunteers without formal training who learn
effective skills through experience. Assess the facilitator’s style and
application of group management techniques. If there was a co-leader,
describe your observation of roles and cohesiveness.
Personal reflection: Using anonymous examples,
describe how insight of this process might influence your theoretical
perspective, facilitation style, and appreciation of group work. How
does this compare to points raised in the “The Benefits of Group Therapy
Observation for Therapists-in-Training” article?
