Assignment Description
For your assignment, imagine the following scenario:
You have been accepted as a student in a special seminar on the formation and ongoing dynamics of a therapy group. This seminar is hosted by Dr. Irving Yalom, the author of many foundational texts on both group therapy and existential psychotherapy. The seminar, as Dr. Yalom explains, is a simulation intended to present a variety of issues and situations common to all therapy groups. It is centered in the individual experiences of the participants and shaped by the dynamics of the group as a whole, facilitators included.
The difference in this particular seminar is that all students will play the part of a supervisor; they are expected to pay attention to particular aspects of each section and analyze facilitator performance, and then offer comments, ask questions, and make suggestions in relation to how the facilitators, Dr. Yalom and his colleague, Joan, handle the aspects in question.
