Social Care With and Within Groups
This course is designed to give students the skills to develop critical appreciation and knowledge about social work group practice. As the power of the group can be extremely powerful and influential, it is necessary to gain a critical appreciation of the group process so that it does not overwhelm.
Social Work With and Within Groups provides the theoretical framework and skills for effective social work practice and interaction with many different types of groups, including family, community and professional.
In this course you will learn how to best work both as an external facilitator or as a member, and how best to switch from one to another of these positions during your group interaction.
