In this module, you have reviewed various specialty groups and the challenges of developing an effective group curriculum. The Group Counseling Proposal assignment (LASA) gives you the opportunity to design a developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive group for a specific clinical issue. As you make progress on this assignment, keep in mind specific goals and the importance of incorporating creativity and sensitivity into the group setting.
In a minimum of 200 words, post to the Discussion Area your response to the following: Share with your classmates the overall structure, the activities and interventions for one session, and one ethical or legal consideration for your group proposal. Include personal reflections on how you would implement your group proposal.
Support your rationale and analysis by using at least 2 resources from professional literature in your response. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (Websites ending in edu. or .gov).
Be sure to read all of your fellow classmates’ original posts and respond to more than two of your classmates’ posts. Comment on any additional information you found about the development of group counseling curriculum. Think about the language you use to comment constructively on other classmates’ posts.
Your discussion posts and all written assignments should reflect graduate level writing skills and appropriate use of APA style, including in-text citations and references.
