Assignment: Group Typology

As a clinical social worker it is important to understand group typology in order to choose the appropriate group method for a specific population or problem. Each type of group has its own approach and purpose. Two of the more frequently used types of groups are task groups and intervention groups.

For this Assignment, review the “Cortez Multimedia” case study, and identify a target behavior or issue that needs to be ameliorated, decreased, or increased. In a 600-word report, complete the following:

  • Choose either a treatment      group or task group as your intervention for Paula Cortez.
  • Identify the model of      treatment group (i.e., support, education, teams, or treatment      conferences).
  • Using the typologies      described in the Toseland & Rivas (2017) piece, describe the      characteristics of your group. For instance, if you choose a treatment      group that is a support group, what would be the purpose, leadership,      focus, bond, composition, and communication?
  • Include the advantages and      disadvantages of using this type of group as an intervention.
