PSYD 251 - System Models, Group Dyn & Interventions

The family as a system will be reviewed by examining external and internal boundaries, internal hierarchy, self-regulation through feedback, and lifecycle changes. Systems theory and research will be discussed within the context of relevant cultural, age, gender, and ethnic factors. Systems theory will then be used to inform group development, dynamics, and theories in relation to group guidance, group counseling, and group therapy. Students will be introduced to different types of groups. Ethical, legal, and multicultural issues, as they apply to group interventions, are examined. Leadership styles, techniques, and roles within a group will also be discussed. This course utilizes a hands-on approach where students learn about group processes via group exercises in class.
