Assessing Group Process
Assignment 2: Assessing Group Process 3
A large part of being a social worker is being able to see the strengths in any situation. This characteristic can be described as having a “half full” view on life. As a clinical social worker, it is important to cultivate strength-based skills.
By now, your group should have developed a plan in completing the Group Wiki Project. In your Assignment, reflect on your group’s process in establishing the group structure (effectiveness of communication), and contracting assignments as you have chosen the family intervention and developed the literature review.
Answer each question below separately with its own references and in text citations to support your information.:
- Describe what you view to be the strengths and weaknesses of your group. The group has good communication via email and texting. Each group member understands their part of the group wiki project.
- What strategies can you implement to assist the group process?
