Working with Groups - PSYP908

This unit provides theory and skills training in group processes and group leadership. As with other Units, this Unit is run in an experiential fashion to teach student to analyse group processes of both external and in-class groups. The unit teaches strategies to lead and facilitate group therapy in a variety of contexts and with a variety of clinical client populations (e.g. anxiety, depression, agoraphobia, psychosis). The application group modes for skills training, such as problem solving skills, social skills training and stress management, is taught. Knowledge of and development of skills for self-care practice are presented. Practical considerations inherent in the application of group-treatment approaches, such as the integration of individuals differing with respect to age, sex, diagnosis and religion, are also addressed.
