I agree with you that assessments in a group is essential to understand the functioning of the group members. Also, I believe that it is important to assess individual members as well as the group as a whole. As a group facilitator we must constantly gather pertinent information that will be used to achieve the individuals and groups goals. Assessing the group helps to make the group more cohesive and beneficially to the members. You made a great point that understanding the characteristics of the group members can help improve group participation. I do believe that if a member is not participating does not mean that they are not benefiting from the group. Also, having a member that monopolize the group does not they are
The test population was a community subjects with osteoarthritis of the knee who needed a unilateral total knee replacement. Test subjects were recruited and divided into two groups; a control group, and a prehabilitation/exercise group. The control group were dealt with the usual care preparation prior to their operation while the prehabilitation group were given an exercise programme and these exercises were performed under supervision. The exercises were performed three times a week and included resistance training, flexibility, and step training.
An important part of our learning and growing experience must stem from our ability to analyze and reflect upon the groups that we have been members in. This reflection can define our understanding of the weaknesses both in ourselves and in the others within our group; and it can help to shape the way that we act in future groups. Adjusting ourselves to compensate for our weaknesses, based upon an honest and thorough examination of our actions within a group setting, is one of most important thing for any person to do. It is only through this evaluation that we can improve ourselves and our interactions with others. This paper will examine a group that was required to make an important decision about adding a new member
Dyads are activities where members of a group are paired together to discuss/solve problems or complete a specific task. This tool is use to increase comfort, provide fun, and provide different learning experiences (p. 220). Group leaders must plan and establish structure before conducting dyads. According to Jacobs et al. (2012), “group leaders need to know when to use dyads, how to pair up members, and the length of time dyads should last” (p. 210). Leaders/facilitators should use dyads in their first group session as a team building skill.
What would you say if your group worked really well together and completed a hard project?
Joilynn you have continued to participated during the second half of the year in AWARE and team activities. In September you co planned a team lunch with another team member. The team lunch turned out to be a lot of fun and everyone had a good time. Thank you for taking the
A study comparing mindfulness and acceptance-based group therapy versus traditional cognitive behavioral group therapy for social anxiety disorder was concluded with the intent to compare the two in terms of treatment efficacy. Two groups were tested against a control group as well; as hypothesized, they were both more effective than the control group, but not notably different from one another on social anxiety reductions and the other variables assessed (Kocovski et al., 2013). Positive directions for any future research may include examining which type of treatment works the best for a particular individual rather than a group, evaluating the relative contribution to the results of specific elements of treatment and an in-depth examination
A group consists of two or more people who interact with each other and share a common purpose. A group consists of individuals who work independently and are led by a strong focused individual. A group that I participate in is Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Sanstha (BAPS) Swaminarayan youth group. BAPS is a worldwide religious and civic organization within the Swaminarayan branch of Hinduism. BAPS was established as a formal organization on 5 June 1907 by Shastriji Maharaj. It was formed on the founder's doctrinal stand that Swaminarayan had promised to remain manifest in the person of Akshar, a term used to describe his chief devotee and Swaminarayan's abode. From the age of 5 to 21, I have been an active member of the BAPS Swaminarayan
In our group essay, I wrote the paragraph on teenage drivers and collaboration with my group on the introduction. I would trade my group's essay an 8 on the AP rubric. I would grade it an 8 because we did a very well job at writing one cohesive essay that flowed nicely along with using strong diction. The part about our essay that set us back was the grammar along with the introduction. I think the essay could of had better grammar such as commas as well as a better attention grabber as our first sentence. Overall, our essay in my opinion was very well written and offered humor to keep the audience attentive, but lack the proper grammar as well as a strong introduction. The process has taught me so much. The main thing it taught me is that
It can be said that knowledge is something that is created individually and then confirmed in a group. Justification is the bridge between truth and belief. The focus of this essay when dis-cussing knowledge, will be on the concept of truth; whether the knowledge is an objective truth, or the truth of an individual; subjective to their own interpretation or experience. Whether knowledge production is possible without group verification is not what is being discussed; rather that truth is not possible without a group’s verification. To do so we must consider whether group verification is always the standard that ensures truth is possible. Op-posing group’s verifications’ may stand in the way of knowledge, through bias or verification methods
As we navigate the requirements of this course, its many rooms, and assignments, each of our members has agreed to take specific roles in order to ensure that our team is successful. The roles are primarily defined by who is, and who is not, assigned to complete assignments during a given week. Individuals who are responsible for assignments during the week will complete the assignment in conjunction with those guidelines provided by the associated room. Assignments are due on Monday, in order to allow the team to teach, review, and learn from each other. Group members who do not have assignments will serve to support and critique the work of the others.
We, the group members also want to thank each other. Each of the group members was very helpful to each other. Every member’s participation was very much beneficial, necessary and nobody let anyone down. The group work was satisfactory for us.
