Effective Group Work with Children and Adolescents

The Association for Specialists in Group Work and Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne are partnering to offer an Advanced Group Training Institute this summer for counselors interested in learning new ideas and skills that will allow them to be effective in leading groups with children and adolescents.

Brief course description:
This course will be an intensive workshop with direct instruction and observation combined with skills practice and role play. The presenters for this course were chosen due to their skill and knowledge in this area of group work.

Expectations of participants:
This institute is designed for counseling professionals in schools, community mental health, rehabilitation, criminal justice and other environments in which effective group work is a necessity. The training is designed so that every level of expertise will be challenged. Because this course is designed as a workshop, the majority of the work will be done during class time.

Live Demonstration:
One day of the Institute will be spent watching a group work expert conduct a session with a group of adolescents. This demonstration will allow students to see the expert utilize effective group work skills, activities, and techniques that will facilitate group process. Students will also be able to ask questions after the demonstration.

For questions about the course contact Kelly Wolfe-Stiltner at or by phone at 260-481-6453.
