Group counseling can be an effective way to help clients manage the stressors of their everyday lives. In addition, group counseling allows clients to develop coping skills while learning relationship skills. Understanding the dynamics of a group and having effective group facilitation skills are essential tools for group counselors.

Group Counseling program will infuse various modalities to include lecture, discussion, and small group activities to introduce and reinforce concepts.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: 1) Define group counseling as a therapeutic intervention and technique; 2) Articulate the principles and theories of group dynamics, including group process components, developmental stage theories, group members' roles and behaviors, and therapeutic factors of group work; 3) Identify various group counseling methods, including group counselor leadership skills and behaviors, working with diverse groups, and methods of evaluation across group counseling settings; 4) Verbalize ethical principles and standards as they specifically apply to group counseling and group therapy.

This program is appropriate for all levels of social work professionals.
