Group Membership: An Integrative Approach to Teaching Small Group Knowledge and Practice Skill.
Schutter, William
The advantages of using an authentic group experience for teaching group leadership skills to social work undergraduates is the focus of this paper. The model presented integrates small group dynamics content within a human services course. Literature describing the use of experiential group membership in teaching group work is reviewed, and the development of training procedures is outlined. The relationship of the group experience to classroom material is described, and the stages of group process are discussed. The role of the instructor as leader/member is described, and outside readings, assignments, attendance requirements, and grading procedures are discussed. Results of a 1981 evaluation completed by 27 graduates of the program are discussed in terms of personal and professional gains. The employment status of graduates is presented, and a copy of the evaluation questionnaire, with results for each item, is provided. (JAC)
