Locate and attend a group of your choosing in which you can observe group process and interaction.
Group Observation, Sociogram, and Summary
Hospitals often have support groups of different types. Open 12-step meetings are also a possible choice. Some places of worship or retreats have support groups that are available for open participation. If possible, attend a meeting of the state’s licensing board. It is also a group with a task.
In 250-500 words, write a review or summary of what you observed.
Develop a sociogram to evaluate the activity of your chosen group. Look for those who are:
- Most active.
- Ignored (neither rejected nor spoken to)
- Isolated (inactive and not encouraged to participate)
- Rejected (not spoken to by anyone)
- Influential (supported by the most active)
