RESPONSE NEEDS TO BE ½ PAGE OR MORE WITH 1 OR MORE REFERENCE
Respond to a colleague who has a different response to Talia. Discuss the benefits of using a strengths-based strategy in this group setting.
Post your description of the purpose of this group.
The purpose of this group focus is on the establishment of trust. During this time, the group therapists and group members work towards establishing a level of trust that allows them to communicate openly and honestly (Toseland & Rivas, 2017). In a climate of trust, people feel free to care about and help each other.
Explain the use of empowerment and strengths-based strategies.
Strengths-based groups are unlikely to run to a set curriculum. The climate of trust provided by the group promotes an environment where members feel safe to share their struggles and work collaboratively to understand one another (Toseland & Rivas, 2017). As individuals increase their self-awareness, develop new ways of relating to people, and learn new adaptive behaviors, they make progress towards their personal goals that brought them to the group (Toseland & Rivas, 2017).
How does “positive regard” impact the group session in this video?
“Positive regards” in the video displayed the need to be regarded positively by others; we need to feel valued, respected, treated with affection and loved. Positive regard helps other people evaluate and judge us in social interaction (Laureate Education Producer 2013).
How might you respond to Talia when she voices her skepticism of the usefulness of group sharing?
I would validate her feeling of skepticism of group sharing, however, reassuring her that whatever that is shared amongst the group stays in the group. Validating her feelings also empowers her but also allowing her to see the level of interaction and trust the group demonstrates.
