Leading a Group Discussion

Group Dynamics Forsyth: chs. 1, 4

Several different types of groups are described in this module/week’s readings. Describe a group that you would like to lead, including the type of group, its size, inclusion criteria, and whether it is open or closed. Identify the group’s purpose. What topics will be covered? How often will the group meet and for how long? In your replies, offer helpful recommendations to your peers on how to make their proposed groups even more effective and beneficial for the members. Based on your readings, who might be interested in joining these groups? What leadership styles and skills demonstrated in the videos will be appropriate?
