A Model for Teaching Group Work through Service-Learning in a Baccalaureate Program
Lennon-Dearing, Robin
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v35 n5 p544-556 2015
Generalist practice social workers need to master group leadership and facilitation skills, and the best way to achieve this goal is through actual practice. An innovative teaching approach used to engage undergraduate social work majors in developing group facilitation skills is a "hands-on" service-learning experience leading social skills groups with middle school children. Students have the opportunity for a meaningful educational experience while working with children in a school setting. A four-session social skills curriculum is provided.
