In
this assignment, you will build on the research conducted for the group
counseling special topic paper. The purpose of this assignment is to design a
developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive group for older adult males with depression.
Group counseling theories and techniques will provide the framework for the
activities outlined in the group counseling proposal. In addition, ethical and
legal considerations, including crisis management or suicidal or homicidal
ideation, will be addressed in the proposal to promote a successful
implementation of the group.

Scenario:

Your
agency administrator has given you the green light to develop a new counseling
group for older adult males with
depression
. You have been asked to create a six-session group
counseling proposal to work with the identified population to provide
counseling or psychoeducation for older
adult males with depression
. You may or may not be leading this group
yourself. Thus, the group proposal needs to be detailed enough for a coworker
to run the group without you.

Instructions:

Develop
a proposal for a psychoeducation or counseling group that will run for six
sessions (90 minutes per session with adults or 30–45 minutes with children).
The proposal should include the following:

  • Describe the overall structure
    of the group.
  • The purpose and goals of the
    group (e.g., treatment issue, rationale for group).
  • The length, frequency, and
    duration of the group.
  • The cultural and developmental
    considerations in the rationale for the group.
  • Define eligibility criteria,
    recruitment strategies, and screening techniques. Include cultural and
    developmental considerations as related to participant recruitment.
  • Analyze and recommend group
    leadership appropriate for this proposed group.
  • Describe a leadership style and
    roles for the leader of group.
  • Give concrete examples of
    appropriate group intervention strategies, such as process comments,
    empathic responses, self-disclosure, feedback, confrontation, and pacing
    skills across the various stages of a group’s development.
  • Generate proposed group norms,
    process, and procedures. Be specific.
  • Structure of the group (e.g.,
    open or closed groups).
  • Group rules.
  • Describe how to build group
    consensus around the group structure and rules.
  • Propose activities and
    interventions for each session, giving details, and describe how these fit
    the anticipated stage of the group process. (Include group handouts in an
    appendix as needed).
  • Include cultural and
    developmental considerations while describing activities.
  • Explain ethical and legal
    considerations.
  • Describe how crisis in the
    group will be handled (e.g., psychological first aid strategies for suicidal
    or homicidal ideation).
  • Briefly mention any additional
    ethical or legal considerations as noted in the special topic paper or
    additional considerations that are relevant to this specific group.
  • Explain the group’s evaluation
    criteria. What will determine whether group goals have been met?
  • Summarize your proposal and
    rationale in a paragraph.

Your
final product should be a 12- to
15-page Microsoft Word document (including the cover page, references, and
appendix), using a minimum of 5 scholarly sources
. At least one of your references should be from the Journal for Specialists in Group Work. Be sure you write in a
clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in
accurate representation and attribution of sources; display accurate spelling,
grammar, and punctuation. Use the most current APA format.
