In this state of affairs, the two workers have different sentiment upon the debriefing during the Sessionss. It reflects the different working manner between colleagues which is one of the common issues when working with co-leaders in group societal work procedure. Even though, different working manner between colleagues can convey complementary to each other and assisting make group dynamic but in this instance it can impact the success of the group as both of the colleague want to undergo/practice with their ain manner and their precedence are different from one worker to another which can finally destruct the group dynamic.
This state of affairs besides reflects that these two colleagues believe in different theory of group societal work. Their theoretical believes in different theories can increase objectiveness through alternate frames of mentions and members are exposed to different manners of interaction. But here in this instance, one worker believes the debriefing is of import whereas the other believe that the maintaining high energy in the session is the higher precedence, it can convey more in conflicting relationship among workers.
Even though, the colleague by and large agree that the of import of de-briefing, but the colleague still believed that it is of higher precedence to prolong the group ‘s high energy in the session. This state of affairs can be improved by negociating and holding more unfastened and deep duologue with the colleague to do more apprehension of the of import of debriefing to acquire the via media between of import of debriefing and group ‘s high energy. After that colleagues can make the planning in front by sharing the duty such as one worker can take attention of the activity part and the another worker can take attention of more upon construction and de-briefing and taking provender back constituent to complement each other with different working manners. By making so, it can heighten co-leadership in adolescent groups of this type of state of affairs.
– Adolescent patient group
– Childs have to travel in and out of the infirmary because of their recurrent unwellness
– Can non go to school on a regular basis
– Bash non hold much societal life
– Some of them are ashamed of their physical visual aspect
– First twosome of Sessionss, members are a spot quiet
– There is a feeling of pessimism among those who portion their narrative
– They do n’t believe that other people would understand their experience.
In this state of affairs, the group members are non in the state of affairs to portion their feelings openly and they besides seem lost of hope. The group members besides have belief that the other people would non understand their experiences which might be originated from their feeling or experiences from their existent life and they bring that feeling and belief into this group session. They are besides emotionally non involved in the group procedure and all these feelings, believes and concerns are usually go on in the beginning phase of group societal work. In add-on to that they may besides believe that sharing their feelings may reproduce more traumatizing events by retrieving their bad experiences or memories.
In this type of state of affairs, we can beef up several curative factors harmonizing to Yalom ( 2005 ) , to better the group work procedure and travel frontward the group work therapy. The first curative factor that can be strengthened is “Universality” . It can be done by uncovering that all the group members have the same feelings and belief every bit good as troubles in their existent life ensuing in the sense of sameness among group members.
The 2nd curative factor that can be strengthened is “Instillation of Hope” as most of the group members lost their hopes. This can be done by supplying positive hopes and battling their beliefs and the group worker can supply some socially influential individual who besides faces such type of state of affairs in younger yearss but now successful in existent life.
Once the above two curative factors are strengthened by the worker, the “Group Cohesiveness” curative factor can besides be automatically strengthened and holding the sense of properties to this group. When the group is in this phase of holding good group coherence, the group members can go more unfastened to portion their emotional openly there by supplying another curative factor “Catharsis” .
Finally, the group worker can besides beef up the curative factor “Altruism” , by demoing each of the group member can portion and supply support to other group members which can retroflex this feeling and belief back to their existent life.
– An adolescent growing group of seven
– General temper of crossness and negativity
– A member can barely get down speaking before another interrupts to state that he/she is bored.
– No 1 seems pleased about anything
– The warm, involved temper at the terminal of the old Sessionss seems wholly forgotten
In this state of affairs, the group members who are adolescent are demoing major characteristics of anxiousness and defences which is a chief characteristic of passage phase. They besides showed general temper of crossness and negativity, which can be observed as behavior forms of opposition, control issues, inter-member struggles and hard Behaviors.
This type of anxiousness and defences occur because the members of this stripling groups fright of being rejected or individual out or fring control or being exposed and become vulnerable or taking to afraid of self revelation. In this passage phase, they all have inclination of being safe on one manus but they besides desiring to take hazards on the other manus. Once the members feel more safe and comfy, this anxiousness and defences will decrease.
The group worker can response this type of state of affairs by moving chiefly three stairss, understand and regard members ‘ defences, be patient with members ‘ procedures and understand the significance of defensive or cautious behaviour. These three stairss can be done by acknowledging and showing any relentless reactions, respect their ain defences but work with them, move from dependance to independency, larn how to face others in a constructive mode so that they do non withdraw into defensive positions, face and trade with reactions toward what is happening in the group, work through struggles instead than staying soundless or organizing subgroups.
In this state of affairs, the group worker can take specific action such as placing the background cause of this negativity and inquire the group members to show their feelings and sentiments. Once, all the members expressed their feelings and sentiments, the worker can get down sharing with his/her observations in respectful ways. The worker can besides propose possible ways or encephalon storm with the group which can assist to reconstruct the warm and the involved temper that created and present in the old session.
– Group of immature people with interpersonal troubles
– Fifth session where members start uncovering their jobs, their frights and failures
– However, one member, Roy, ever responds to others with gags and playful irony
– This normally stops other members from farther sharing
In this state of affairs, the group worker can detect that this peculiar group member, Roy, is a type of member with hard behaviors which fall under the class of “hostile member” . Hostile members usually express by different behaviours such as irony, losing Sessionss, coming tardily to Sessionss etc ( Corey, Corey, & A ; Corey, 2010 ) .
Here in this state of affairs, the group member, Roy ever responds to others with gags and playful irony while the remainder of the members start uncovering their jobs, their frights and failures where the other members are already in the passage to working phase of group procedure. If the group worker can non manage decently towards this type of hard behaviors group member, the group procedure can deteriorate. It can even take the other members non go on uncovering their jobs, their frights and failures which can convey the negative affects towards the group procedure.
The group worker need to understand such members as they usually displays hard behaviours and detect how the worker ‘s response to make up one’s mind how much they can swear the leader. So the worker demand to ease penetration and growing for such type of hard members by measuring whether they see themselves as the problem-maker or non and what this type of member trying to pass on through their behaviour.
The worker can move as an chance to assist the group to pattern how it jointly response to this type of challenge by this type of member with hard behavior. This can be done by inquiring to co-members feedback upon his behavior which can do him more understanding himself of his behavior can impact the group development.
The worker besides needs to understand the sensitiveness every bit good as empathy when making such type of taking feedback from co-members towards Roy which can make confrontation among co-members. The worker besides needs to do Roy understand upon his ain behavior and his attitude towards this group. By making so, the worker can take the group to make to the successful intercession of running a group procedure.
