SW22017 | Working with Aggression in Groups

  • Apt #5K 211 West 56th Street New York, NY, 10019 United States (map)

Successful group work requires leaders to accept all feelings. Working with aggression, especially in groups, can test even the most seasoned group leader. In this experiential workshop, members are encouraged to explore, examine and become sensitized to issues of aggression in their groups. Interventions using appropriate techniques will be demonstrated.  

Objectives - Participants will be able to:
1.    Name three defenses against experiencing aggressive feelings from group members
2.    Name two common defenses used by leaders against experiencing aggressive feelings towards group members
3.    Study and name their internal reactions to aggressive feelings and list two appropriate interventions to deal with these aggressive situations
