This project provides students with the opportunity to develop knowledge about group work techniques and activities with client groups that are of particular interest to a specific population/group. In addition to developing leadership skills, students will have the opportunity to practice a frequently used community organization skill, staff training and development. In addition, the delivery of a workshop quality presentation is a professional skill that can be included in students’ resumes.
For this assignment you will select a target audience to educate on a specific group technique, group strategy, or group activity that you would like to use with a specific population. The presentation is developed to train staff at a specific agency on the technique or strategy that you are proposing to use. For example: If I want to train Social work staff on how to use “Round robin” with a treatment group for teen victims of sexual assault. I would put together a PowerPoint that describes the treatment group, age and sex of the group participants, number of participants, and describe the “round robin” strategy that you will use for the group and how it may benefit that group. Use information from the text and/or from peer reviewed articles about the effectiveness of this strategy with this population.
Should include the following:
I. PowerPoint presentation
II. Paragraph Description
III. Reference Page
