ASSIGNMENT: Group Plan

Create a group plan for one session for a specific population based on your theoretical orientation and demonstrate how you would use it in your profession. Be sure to identify evidenced based practices, cultural awareness, and an integrated approach to group counseling.

In your participation posts, respond to other peer group session plans, giving suggestions for improvement or other observations that would be helpful as a group facilitator.

What comments can you give them that would help further their development? Any ideas from the readings and resources that might apply?
