Goals Types of Group Goals Goals can be session specific or germane to the entire group process over time. Goals can be group or individual. Usually the group sets goals and these goals are met both on an individual level as well as on a group level. Copyright Allyn & Bacon 2004 Goals Types of Group Goals Goals will be specific to the type of group (e.g. psychoeducational, task,

counseling, psychotherapeutic as well as grief and loss, remedial etc.) Goals can be short-term, long-term or time limited. Goals can also be determined by the theory used. Copyright Allyn & Bacon 2004 Goals Examples of Theory Based Goals Psychoanalytic

The main goal is to gain insight and adaptation. The goal is also to obtain deep and lasting changes in internal object constellations. It is important to free the individual from transference-bound repetition. The goal is also to free the person from psychological chains that has bound the individual into a life of suffering and repetition. Copyright Allyn & Bacon 2004 Goals Examples of Theory Based Goals Person-Centered The goal is to provide an atmosphere of trust and respect so that

group members can feel free to express themselves. The goal is to help group members become congruent and genuine. Copyright Allyn & Bacon 2004 Goals Examples of Theory Based Goals Cognitive-Behavioral Goals are formed both individually upon intake and as a group within the sessions. The goals are operationally defined (made concrete and measurable). Goals might be issue specific (e.g., in an assertive training group the goal might be to reach a certain score on a test that measures

assertiveness which indicates that group members or an individual increased his or her ability to be assertive). Copyright Allyn & Bacon 2004 Goals Examples of Group Modality Based Goals Self-Help Groups The goal is to help group members resume adaptive functioning and coping. These goals will be issue specific such as: Alcoholics Anonymous: The goal is to help the alcoholic retain sobriety by countering the assertiveness of alcoholism by teaching surrender.

Recovery Inc: Goal is to promote willpower and a positive selfimage in people suffering from mental disorders. Synnanon: Goal is to keep the addict drug free by reversing the addicts social and emotional detachments. Copyright Allyn & Bacon 2004 Goals Examples of Goals for Diverse Groups Group goals take diversity issues into consideration. Goals need to be consistent with the values and beliefs of the cultural group of the members. Group leaders can consult with cultural leaders to make sure group

goals are appropriate for the group. Group leaders need to be cognizant of how they might positively or negatively impact group goals within a cultural context. Copyright Allyn & Bacon 2004 Goals Group Goals in the Schools Goals might be age specific: Example: Middle School or Junior High Goals are to help students work in cooperative learning groups. Goals are to help students learn skills (e.g. problem solving, communication, and build self-esteem.)

Goals can include helping the student test self-perceptions against reality. Goals can include helping students explore new behaviors. Copyright Allyn & Bacon 2004 Goals Group Goals in the Schools Goals might be issue specific: Example: Group Guidance Relating to Race and Ethnicity Goals might include:

Helping students accept and appreciate differences in others. Helping students learn the appropriate terminology. Helping students explore their biases. Helping students learn about other cultures and ethnicities. Copyright Allyn & Bacon 2004 Goals The Group Counselors Role in Goal Setting

The counseling goals are a collaboration between counselor and group members. The counselor aids and guides members in choosing goals that are both appropriate and obtainable. Sometimes smaller sub-goals are needed to reach a larger goal. If goals are set that are unobtainable it promotes failure. It is the group counselors responsibility to ensure this does not happen.
