Review for Groupworks for Education Inc, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I work in the Department of Education as a social worker providing counseling services. Groupworks provides professional training for counselors and social workers who provide counseling. I have been participating in their supervision groups and training sessions for over a year. The groups are didactive as well as experential. You experience directly what it is like being part of a group with a Groupworks professional as well as learn the group techniques didactically in a supportive, nonthreatening framework. You learn methods of helpiing group members interact more with each other as well as moving the groups along.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

It has often been restorative and energizing. It has helped me feel comfortable in working with groups and in dealing with confrontational often angry adolescents. As a professional in the field for over twenty years I have found this training group to be one of the best training experiences that I have had.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I worked as a social worker providing counseling services.
