From Therapeutic Groups to Boardrooms: How to be Effective Leaders and Members Workshop

Submitted by Lynn Holforty on October 12, 2012

Dr. Diana Hulse

On Saturday, November 10, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dr. Diana Hulse will conduct a workshop on becoming effective group leaders and members. The workshop will be held in Fairfield University’s Dolan School of Business Dining Room.

Much of the work we do in our world happens in groups; it is hard to imagine activities that do not include interactions with others to complete tasks, solve problems, address problematic aspects in one’s life, or acquire information. We are sometimes leaders of groups; most often we are members of groups. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to a conceptual framework to consider across the broad application of group work. Concepts of voice, meaning, mutual construction of knowledge, and transfer of learning provide a means for understanding how and why groups work. Through short lecture, small group discussion, demonstrations, and reflection, participants will gain tools for making the broad application of group work a productive and satisfying reality.

Dr. Diana Hulse, professor and chair of the Counselor Education Department at Fairfield University, received her master’s and doctoral degrees from Indiana University. She has co-authored two books and numerous refereed publications. In 2012 she received the Alpha Sigma Nu Graduate Teacher of the Year Award at Fairfield University. Dr. Hulse has been a counselor educator at Ball State University, the University of Maine, and the University of New Orleans. She is a National Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Connecticut.

There is no cost to attend the workshop, but space is limited.
