The Breakfast Club
Watch the movie The Breakfast Club (1985) Rated R, 97 minutes. Even if you have watched this movie previously, watch it again. View the movie from a group process conceptual framework, and submit an analysis which addresses the following:
• Apply the stages of group development to the group. Reference specific events in the movie that illustrate the particular stages. Describe how you might lead a counseling group composed of these individuals at each stage of group development.
• Describe how the group cohesiveness builds as the group gets to know one another. What activities help the group members bond? As the group leader of a counseling group composed of these individuals, how would you increase the cohesiveness in the group?
• Identify and discuss three norms for this group. Analyze how conducive these norms are to a therapeutic group process. What steps would you take as a group leader to strengthen or modify the norms within this group?
• Does gender play a role in this group’s communication? If yes, how? If no, why?
• Who is the leader in this group and how does he or she emerge through the group’s interactions? Give specific examples of leadership from the film.
• Imagine that you are supervising a therapist who is the group leader for this group of individuals. Choose a particular group issue or problem that occurred between members of the group. Describe how you would guide the therapist to facilitate the group to deal with the issue.
