Group Observation "Concepts in Action" Worksheet

observed therapeutic factors, interpersonal skills, group facilitator skills, or other group therapy concepts listed in the
Inventory of Group Leadership and Interpersonal Skills.
CONCEPT
DESCRIPTIVE OBSERVATION OR ILLUSTRATIVE GROUP INTERACTION
Themes, Issues, Challenges
The session's central theme was evaluating the art of communication and receiving
feedback during the drug and alcohol recovery process. The members in the group
struggled to show a sense of acceptance. The absence of acceptance or open-
mindedness made some members not openly receive the information their
acquaintances were stating. Similarly, there was an aspect of dismissiveness to the
help and support offered. Therefore, group cohesion posed a challenge since some
members wrongly received the feedback, projecting the comments as disrespectful
or inconsiderate. The absence of open-mindedness to feedback makes some
members feel the therapy process would not be effective.
Three or more Group
Dynamics
1.Recurrent themes and
patterns
2. Group conflict
3. Coalitions
1. There was a high sense of recurrent themes through the discussion where
members were offered advice but are unwilling to accept the recommendation.
For example, when the members warn Brian about thinking about pubs and
clubs, he gets defensive. Therefore stating he knows what he is doing and that
he does not see the need for therapy. Similarly, when Sabina notes her issue, the
members also offer different forms of advice. However, she is less receiving
and states Gemma's problems are more important than hers. The same occurred
when Louise advised her to find an assertiveness training class and when
Horace said she should try marriage counseling.
2. The group lacked healthy cohesiveness. Some comments stated seemed to lack
empathy; for example, when Mark told Gemma that her main issue was, she
was reluctant in accepting powerlessness.
3. There is a form of coalition when the members give their opinions when a
problem gets raised. There are different evident forms of coalitionary structures;
ally to ally and allies versus the third party. For example, when Sabina raises
her issue, the members advise her to face the issue rather than viewing her
husband as a nuisance and advise her to seek additional help outside the
interpersonal growth therapy.
Three or more Therapeutic
Factors Operating:
1.Imparting information
2.Catharsis
3.Installation of hope
1. Members in the group offer Brain and Sabina direct advice. The advice
rendered does not primarily serve a purpose in the content of advice. Instead, it
reflects mutual interest by the members in the wellbeing of each other. For
example, when different members give Sabina advice on approaches, she may
consider taking. Similarly, when Jimmy, who has been in the treatment session
the longest, shares his experience.
2. Members in the group are not reluctant to share the emotions felt, allowing
other members to gain new insights into the individuals' interpersonal style. In
addition, through expressing, members can learn those tied to the session and
those who do not see the therapy as effective.
3. The members encourage the discouraged to not give up on the process. For
example, when Gemma stated she initially wanted one-to-one counseling, the
members encouraged her by showing her the group values her.
Three or more Interpersonal
or Group Leadership Skills
Used
1.Consensual validation
2.Reflection of feelings
1. Consensual validation occurs when Nathan and Leighton agree on observed
events demonstrated by Sabina and Brian when the group offers them advice
but are unwilling to accept things stated.
2. The acknowledges Nathan's feelings then proceeds to highlight the issue by
asking Sabina's perspective of the process.
3. The members continuously comment on the subject at hand with minimal
interference from the therapist. As a result, the members can ask each other
