After a period of reflection, one should approach the opposing party and invite them to engage in conversation. In addition, rather than avoid bringing the issue up directly, be clear about what you want to discuss in order to ensure equal focus. There shouldn’t be any more escalation of whatever conflict has come to light: make sure to express the desire for a clean resolution of the issue. 2. Share perspectives a.
Basically, clients in groups will be able to gain insight into their resistances and defenses more dramatically in a group setting than in individual therapy. This applies the same goes for transference insight whereby in group process, members are instruct to say whatever comes to their mind even though it might seems irrelevant or illogical. Techniques are applied in the group session but it will be open to other members in a group. After the end of the session, client is not advisable to stay in contact with one another. The goal is to encourage clients to go further to achieve something that they have been aiming for (Kleinberg, 2011).
Conflict is when there is a serious disagreement or clash amongst individuals and conflict resolution is when there is a process to solve this conflict in a peaceful manner. When there is a conflict that arises in our group we plan to always have a resolution. Some of the ways, we will deal with conflict are as follows: • We will appoint someone who will facilitate all the meetings. This person will call the meeting to order, go over what we discussed in our previous meeting, facilitate the questions and make sure we stay with the task on hand. • When a conflict does arise, we will be respectful of each other and their opinions.
An acceptable listener is a person who is able to put aside their thoughts and opinions in order to digest someone else’s views that are possibly different. However, the person can retain their own opinions even after listening, but for that moment they had an open mind during the discussion. In “On Communication”, Bohm is trying to manifest the readers why listening is critical. Bohm states that “communication can lead to the creation of something new only if people are able to freely listen to each other, without prejudice and without trying to influence each other.” In that statement, it is clear that Bohm is telling the importance of listening to one another. However, people must listen to each other, no matter anyone’s opinion, since that’s how new ideas are created, how people come together, and how people become educated.
Here the basic line of argument is that groups come into being in a psychological sense ‘not because their members necessarily are similar to one another (although they may be); rather, a group exists when people in it realize their fate depends on the fate of the group as a whole’ (Brown 1988: 28). Behaviour within a group: - After collecting experimental evidence, Lewin concluded that groups with a democratic setup were likely to perform better than ones with autocratic
Communication 8 focuses on group communication regardless of whether it is a large or small group. It should help us understand what really is communication and how it should be used properly. Overall we will be able to solve problems, deliberate and reach decisions as a group. As a group we will come together to complete any material that has to be done properly. I believe that I will learn how to solve problems, learn what it takes to communicate with others, and be able to better understand others.
The task was to come up with as many creative uses for a thumb tack. The interactive group performed the task first and was told to come up with ideas together by talking out loud. The nominal group performed the task after the interactive group and they were given the same exact instructions, but they were not allowed to discuss their ideas with one another during the brainstorming task. The independent variable in this study was the type of group the participants were put in, the independent variable had two levels, nominal and interactive. The dependent variable in this study was the number of ideas each group created and how creative each group 's ideas were.
Before I had completed any research, my teamwork skills such as communication and listening were fairly established however I would never fight for my ideas and often go along with other people’s as I did not want to be an inconvenience to my peers. I used a questionnaire designed to identify your type of conflict style, how you personally tend to deal with conflict e.g. sharing ideas or discussing ideas (Faculty of, 2011) to see how I work within a group. From this I learnt that I prioritise my relationships with people and my conflict type ignores “their own goals and resolve conflict by giving into others” (Faculty of, 2011). I then made sure that I shared my ideas more often within a group setting.
Person centred approach means that all plans for care and any discussion are centred to the individual, so every persons care plan caters to their needs. This ensures that care plans are not copy and pasted and they are all the same as that implies that all people are the same which is not true. It also ensures that the service user is involved in the discussions and are contributing their ideas and they share how the plan makes them feel, so that if something makes them uncomfortable or they aren’t quite sure they can change this or have it explained to them more clearly so that they feel more comfortable. The person centred approach also looks at the service users family and friends and how they can help and what they can contribute. (House with No Steps,
The ultimate goal of the technique is that no one should be sideline when it comes to making decisions. Understandably, this technique is not an every meeting use, but it is meant for use when a group is in a crossroad or in need to generate ideas. Delphi Technique: This technique involves using a questionnaire filled out by individuals without physically assembling them to make a decision. The questionnaire asks individuals to write down answers for series of questions which is then used to reach a consensus decision by the group. Majority Rule: This technique suggests that every group member has a voting right to an opinion and the opinion that has the highest vote is implemented.
And finally, everyone one should trust each other. If there any problems appear during the work, we should point them put, so that everyone can work on it. Don’t be shy, just ask. If we make the rule earlier, and every one follow it, there will be less problems and be more efficiency doing our works. Rather than spend lots of time on these problems.
We will be most understanding with their questions, doubts, and issues in the matter. We will encourage group members to maintain everything that happens in the group sessions confidential, in order to preserve the group 's dynamic. Group format Session 1: Group Introduction • Explain the purpose of the group and introduce the goals and nature of the group. Collect informed consent. • Introduce each other/ getting to know each other.
Generally this will include guidelines that involve issues that go along with any group such as confidentiality and attendance, as well as pointing out that they will not be forced to participate in discussions and the establishment of a supportive, noncritical atmosphere. The second is the fact phase. During this phase, the members of the group are asked to give a little description of their role during the incident from their own perspective as well as some facts regarding what happened. It is not uncommon for a few individuals to provide core facts while others fill in the missing
The main role of my group in the overall functioning of the organization is to combine our different nationalities, cultures, languages, beliefs, thoughts and emotions together, and become one whole, as a completed group. In my group I am trying my best to achieve better communication with every single person. Unfortunately, despite my intention to get in touch with all the members of my group, it is not successfully happening all the time. Mostly, I am interacting with the girls in my group, because we have a lot in common to talk about. I am communicating with the boys as well, but not that much.
In the article" Bias Awareness and Multiple Perspectives Essential Aspects of Conflict Resolution" Prutzman, Johnson (1997) discusses an important issue which is bias awareness and conflict resolution cannot be dissociated. Also he explains why they cannot be separated based on different references. In addition, he raises examples depends on the organization CCRC whom their purpose to reduce violent and conflict through variable skills. Moreover, he concludes that difference is accepted, when the individuals accepted on themselves and others. In the end he recommends people should expose more to the culture and to understand that change will not happen rapidly, but it takes time.
