OVERVIEW

The course aims to study and understand the group as a tool to intervene in the social reality.

During the course will be presented the main approaches to the study of the groups according to the two theoretical orientations of social psychology and dynamic psychology. Following these approaches will be analyzed methods and intervention techniques applicable in different social organizations.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to understand and to acquire the theories, methods, and the values of group psychology.

The course aims to recognize the processes and aspects that characterize the group dynamics and provide skills for the reading and the group management. Another objective will be to analyze the group as a working tool and present the different application contexts and intervention methodologies.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

In particular, the teaching aims are to provide students with basic notions of group psychology applied to different contexts  and to focus on specific intervention techniques in different contexts.
Individual study, attendance and participation in the proposed training activities will enable the student to:

acquire adequate theoretical knowledge, methodological and skills related to the application of different methods and group intervention techniques in different application contexts.

apply their knowledge and understanding and solving problems related to the use of methods and group techniques in various application contexts.

use, both conceptually and operative mode, the knowledge gained from self-evaluation skills and expertise in different application contexts.

acquire the typical discipline technical language to be able to communicate clearly and unambiguously with specialists and non-specialist interlocutors.

develop appropriate learning skills to allow them to independently investigate major issues, techniques and methods of discipline especially in the workplace in which they will operate.

Teaching methods

Lectures, active methods, practical exercises and case studies

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The course will show how the group present in the different contexts of everyday life can become a professional working tool for the figure of the psychologist. The group will be proposed as a relational tool that acquires specificity (educational, therapeutic, intervention, research) and meanings in various application contexts.
