The basic principles of small group interaction will be explored in both didactic and experiential components of the course. Part of becoming an effective group leader is exploring the nature and consequences of one's interaction with others. Students will be asked to participate in a number of activities that will allow students to learn with their own personal styles of interacting with others. These activities will be supplemented with theory in group dynamics. It is the intent of the course that the student will be able to transfer skills learned in the class to settings where group leadership is required (i.e., almost any job).
Prerequisite: PSY 100 Introduction to Psychology.
