Write an integrative paper based on some of the theories presented in class that articulates your
personal theoretical orientation (EX: “Maria’s theory”) to group counseling. Your paper should explore
some of the following themes:
 Key concepts of your approach
 View of your role as a group counselor
 The role of group members
 Key developmental tasks and therapeutic goals
 Techniques and methods
 Stages in the evolution of a group
This particular portion should be between 6 and 8 pages. Attempt to integrate as many concepts and
techniques as you can, based upon several of the models of group counseling that we will discuss.
Please DO NOT simply summarize the textbook content.
Instead, demonstrate in your own words that you understand the various models. You might cluster
some theories together and address common concepts and themes associated with a general category,
such as:
 Psychodynamic approaches: Psychoanalytic and Adlerian
 Experiential and relationship-oriented approaches: Existential, Person-Centered, & Gestalt
 Cognitive-behavioral approaches: Behavioral, REBT, Reality and Solution Focused
If you do this you are really integrating no more than three or four general approaches. Show
how you might use key concepts and techniques from the various approaches in working with
diverse client populations in a group setting. It is more important that you address the
implications of your personalized approach to effective multicultural practice, so do
incorporate the diversity perspective in your discussion. You do not need to cover all the
5 theories, for this is too ambitious for this length of paper. What you do want to accomplish is
to demonstrate YOUR OWN INTEGRATION of several theories, or you could even take a single
main theory as your anchor and then demonstrate how you would draw from several other
approaches.
