ON-LINE ASSIGNMENT - Week 5 - Watch the slide presentation: Theories and Techniques of Group Counseling by Kendall, (Prezi) and write a two-page paper on your Theoretical Approach and apply it to the two case vignettes (Phil) & (Rose) (Due 04-04-20)
THEORETICAL APPROACHES CASES
A Japanese-American Phil, expresses his discomfort and anxiety during the second meeting of his group. A keen listener, he is having difficulty speaking up whenever he is required to, and he is contemplating leaving because he understands that all members are required to participate.
Moreover, he fears rejection so he prefers to sit back and watch during the group meetings. To prevent him from leaving, some group members plead with him to give them a second chance some ask him not to quit and challenge him to prove he is not a coward while others resort to pressuring him to remain in the group.
A Hispanic-American rarely talks in her group. Other members have expressed concerns about her silence, and Rose responds that she is more of a listener and that she prefers to talk only when she has something to say. She asserts that even though she is interested in group activities, she does not want to talk just so that others may hear her voice.
