The paper should include the following Headings Introduction – the author’s reasons for planning this group for this population; the purpose and hopes for the group. Refer to yourself as “the author.” Background – use the research articles and the textbook to describe the target population and why group work is an appropriate intervention modality for this population. This will be like the literature review section. Use 2 journal articles. You can also use internet sources and the textbook, but you still must have the 2 articles. Contact Instructor if you need help finding articles. Goals and Objectives for the Group – what do you hope the group will achieve? how will you know if the group has been successful – as a whole and for individual group members? what instrument will be used to gather data about pre-group functioning and post-group functioning? Planning the Group – describe what you are planning and why, always trying to tie the particular plan to the needs of the population, such as, meeting in the morning because it’s for older, retired people, or having a closed group because it’s for trauma survivors, etc. Include: how often will it meet? what time of day? in-person or online? at an agency/school/hospital or a neutral spot in the community? Can potential group members be surveyed first to see what works for them? Recruiting group members – describe how you think this could most successfully be done, considering the population you want to reach and the agency setting/resources. Will you use flyers to the general public, or current agency clients as referred by their workers? Will you seek funding so you can offer food, door prizes, transportation, childcare? Will you partner with a court or state agency that can mandate participation? What obstacles do you anticipate? Intervention Approach and Group Development – talk a bit about the theoretical approach you are starting from to plan this group (and why), such as behavioral, psychodynamic, solution-focused, attachment — there can be more than one of course. Discuss the role of the group leader(s) [more talkative and directive in a psychoeducational group or socialization group, less talkative and more facilitative in a therapy or support group, etc.] What techniques and activities will you use, what skills will be most important for the Leaders to use. Also discuss how you expect the group dynamics to evolve over time for your particular population, such as 4-5 sessions to warm up and establish trust, or do you expect trust quickly and lots of sharing right away — it depends on the target population (e.g., formerly incarcerated people, teenage boys, mixed-gender or gender-specific) Ethical & Multicultural Considerations and Termination- will group members be voluntary or involuntary/mandated; how will you talk to them about confidentiality and its limits, what other group rules will you want to establish (can they socialize outside of group, or not…), will the rules be written out and signed by everyone and/or posted on the wall, reviewed each time, etc. What cultural issues will be important for the group planner/leader to consider? Conclusion – provide a brief concluding statement. *Also, if you list 5 terms that appeared in your articles and that are important for readers to know, and their definitions, you will receive 5 extra credit points on your grade for the paper. Plagiarism (such as the absence of or minimal use of citations in the paper, or in-body citations not found on the reference page) can lead to a “0” for the paper.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
