Using Social Justice Group Work with Young Mothers Who Experience Homelessness
Coker, Angela D.; Meyer, Dixie; Smith, Rachelle; Price, Amber
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v35 n3 p220-229 Sep 2010
Research indicates (e.g., Bassuk et al., 1997) that women and children make up a large percentage of the total number of individuals living without permanent shelter. This article represents a reflective analysis of our work as group facilitators who conducted a series of personal growth groups for young mothers living in a residential facility located in a Midwestern city in the United States. We discuss our role as group facilitators who infused social justice principles in our group work, share challenges we experienced along the way, and offer suggestions for facilitating group counseling interventions.
