Assignment: Types of Groups

Groups are an excellent choice for helping people change. Some groups are relatively short term and designed to meet the needs of specific populations, while others are focused on interpersonal learning and may be less structured. The group leader must be knowledgeable about the various types of groups, the strengths and limitations of each, and the unique leadership skills and training required to lead each type of group. Unlike a classroom setting, where the emphasis is on the acquisition of knowledge, a counseling group is organized to help people solve problems and make personal changes. While psychoeducation groups typically include a curriculum and an educational component, the interpersonal relationships formed during the group are an integral part of the process. Strategies and interventions for the work of the group are based on a scholar-practitioner model and utilize empirical evidence from the research.
