This course will give the ability students to work with groups in planning and problem-solving. It will focus on the principles of group formation, structure, and dynamics to allow students to differentiate groups at various levels of development. Building upon this, students will learn the skills and techniques to unleash group discussion, creativity and agreement. Processes of group interaction will be explored to help students anticipate and manage resistances and defenses that are confronted in group encounters. (3 credits)
