This course is designed to provide an overview of group dynamics theories from the systems-centered and group-as-a-whole perspectives. The focus is on applying group dynamics theories to the leadership of experiential process groups, with a particular focus on groups in Association for Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE). Students enhance their understanding of the theory and practice of group dynamics through readings, discussion and experiential group participation.
