As our course comes to an end, your second residency where you will practice co-leading a group is around the corner. It will be helpful to consider how group leadership skills are evaluated and take time to develop.
Review the ten competencies listed in the Assessment of Group Counselors’ Competencies found in Appendix C of your Group Counseling: Concepts and Procedures text (linked in Resources). Identify at least two competencies you anticipate will require continued practice and training during fieldwork and early in your career. Using course readings to support your strategy, describe how an early career counselor can develop these competencies.
