Group Skills

In  250 words reply extend the discussion below by analyzing and building ideas using two references.  The response must demonstrate course-related knowledge and assertions must be supported by references in the current APA format. Use of first-person and single-spaced formatting is appropriate.  Also, the inclusion of headings/subheadings is not needed  The response must be well written, well organized, and focused.Discussion In module three, we read about skills for leading groups – skills such as active listening, reflection, clarification, and questioning, summarizing, mini-lecturing, encouraging, and modeling (Jacobs, Schimmel, Masson & Harvill, 2016).  As we lead groups, it will be important to incorporate these skills into group sessions if we desire to be successful.  I feel that I will find it easiest to incorporate active listening skills and I may have some difficulties when it comes to incorporating multicultural understanding.According to Jacobs et al. (2016), active listening requires that the group leader listens to the content, voice, and body language of many people speaking at one time and not just the person talking.  The group leader must also scan the room for nonverbal gestures, facial expressions and body shifts, in order to be aware of what the group members are feeling and thinking even if they are not speaking (p. 132). It is important that the group member speaking feels that the group leader is really listening as they are also trying to listen to other group member’s silent messages (p. 132). Through the years, friends, family, and colleagues have often told me that I am a good listener, intuitive, and usually pick up pretty well on how people feel and think based on their nonverbal communication, facial expressions, and gestures. Also, having grown up in a large family where everyone was always talking at once, and learning to hear everyone may also make this technique easier for me to incorporate into my own group leadership.Many groups are made up of diverse cultural backgrounds and it will be the job of the group leader to have a multicultural understanding (Jacobs et al., 2016). While through the years racial and ethnic diversity has continued to grow in our communities and I have learned a lot, I still know that I will need to learn much more about other cultural backgrounds in order to serve these populations to the best of my ability.  According to Jacobs et al., (2016), I will need to understand how each member’s culture affects their participation in the group. These culture variations will also influence both group members’ and group leader’s behavior, as well as the group process (p. 155).Jacobs, Schimmel, Masson & Harvill (2016).
