This is a continuation of the fall and spring semester courses, with the emphasis on group. This course provides an introduction to current, clinically relevant knowledge and theory about behavior in groups and about the dilemmas of group life. It also provides an in-depth look at the various types of group activities commonly conducted by professional psychologists. Specific topics to be addressed include: the individual in the group; issues of group development; group as a whole; leadership in groups; individual differences and diversity within groups; ethics and group therapy; transference issues in groups; functional roles of group members; and unconscious dynamics in group life. The aim is to provide didactic and experiential learning opportunities which enhance the ability of students to test theory against the realities of group life as they experience them.
