Reflect on your experience so far in starting the Group Wiki Project.
Group work is something that is bound to occur, especially when working in a clinical setting. Group work is needed for a client’s treatment and discharge planning. Without group work, effective treatment for a client could be very difficult to do. It is for that very reason that I find group work to be very important, especially in a clinical setting. As a social worker, you can work together with other clinical professionals to provide treatment to an individual as a team/group. Group work is also commonly seen in the school setting as well.
Honestly, I am not a big fan of group assignments or group projects due to several bad experiences. Working in groups in a school setting can be very challenging because of so many potential conflicts. Some of those conflicts can be difficulty in finding a time that all group members can meet, not getting along with some of the group members, group members not doing their part, and/or group members not submitting their portion of the assignment on time. Luckily, I have had a good experience being in a group with Caressa and Maria. Describe how your group initiated contact and your level of comfort in working on a project with a group online.
Caressa initiated contact by sending Maria and me an email asking what would be the best method of communication. I suggested using âGroup Meâ to communicate, but we all decided, in the end, to communicate via text message in a group chat. So far, Caressa, Maria, and I have met on Zoom video chat.
During this meeting, we discussed assignment roles, who will do what portion of the group assignment, the case scenario, and meeting days and times. The topic of our assignment will be â
lack of disciplineâ
Together the three of us were able to put together a great case scenario for that topic. So far, Caressa and Maria seem to be very pleasant.
