Section: A

CRN: 14937

Credits: 3

This course is intended to provide participants with a unique opportunity to examine the issues inherent in facilitating a variety of group settings. Participants will have the opportunity to gain rich experience in the design, implementation, facilitation and evaluation of these unique group contexts. This course is primarily a laboratory training experience based on a model refined over the decades by National Training Laboratories. The NTL model, which focuses on personal and group development, is supplemented to provide a richer experience for understanding and applying group-process theory. Further opportunities to develop and practice sophisticated group facilitation skills are provided.

Open to: All university graduate students by instructor permission. Please email to register. NOTE: Due to the intense nature of the group experiences and the potential for psychological risk, admission is at the discretion of the instructor, but should be a collaborative decision between instructor and student. Students managing a personal crisis should not consider the course until the crisis is well under control. Students engaged in psychotherapy or counseling should notify the instructor prior to registering.
