Group Dynamics and Family Dynamics

profileShahbastet

 

When working with families and groups the  priority is for the social worker to understand the process that is  taking place.  In both situations there is the overt (clearly stated)  dynamics and the covert (hidden) dynamics.  The content (what is being  said) in both settings is what is open and stated.  The process (how it  is being said) is the unspoken information; what is underneath the  interaction is what the social worker needs to explore in both groups  and family systems.

For this Discussion, watch the video segments of a group and a family session provided in required resources.


Post the following:

  • Describe the group dynamic (communication, cohesion, social integration, influence) of the group shown in the required media.
  • Explain how this group’s dynamics may influence treatment.
  • A description of the family dynamic (communication, cohesion,  social integration, influence) of the family shown in the required  media.
  • Explain how this family’s dynamics may influence treatment.
  • Explain any similarities or differences when assessing dynamics in a  group versus a family and how those dynamics may affect treatment.
