Group Process Illuminated: Facilitating the Here-and-Now through the Reflecting Team.
Chen, Mei-whei; Noosbond, Julie Pohn
This paper presents a reflecting team work model that helps move a group system through increased process illumination. Grounded in second-order cybernetics and social constructionism, this model emphasizes the group as a linguistic system. In this group setting, language works to co-construct meaning and generate new narratives for client experiences. A protocol is provided for using the reflecting team in the group setting. Principles for language use, landmarks for reflection, and practical procedures for using the reflecting team are detailed. Appropriately used, the reflecting team method can facilitate member recognition of complex group process and move the group away from stalemate towards productive work. Limitations of the model and its application to other settings are included. (Contains 48 references.) (Author/ND)
