Description

Often times those we serve feel alone in their journey of healing. Group work is a great way to provide a collective experience and grow ssupport systems. This workshop focuses on the application of social work group theory as it applies across the life span to client intervention groups. Three focal areas are addressed within the context of social work group theory: the individual group member, the group as a whole, and the environment in which the group functions. Attention is also given to a theoretical approach for working with individuals with diverse backgrounds in diverse settings. This workshop is both lecture and interactive style learning.
