Show Summary Details


Literature searches produced few evidence based studies on group leadership teaching methods. The consensus from professional experts is that group leadership training encompasses three dimensions: knowledge, leader personal development, and techniques and skills. Much of the attention is given to the use of experiential groups as a teaching learning strategy and the procedural and ethical concerns that surround its use. This chapter presents historical and current research on teaching models, professional mental health organizations’ training standards, experiential groups, cultural and diversity concerns, ethics, teaching and training methods, major training issues, and recommendations.

Keywords: groupleadership training; leadershipteaching models; experiential group training; groupleader training standards
