The description of content in this chapter relies heavily upon the author's experience in social support groups convened. Exercises and activities that seemed to work in the groups she and colleagues convened are provided. Consistent with the theme of this chapter, sessions were generally oriented toward teaching members to identify and access social support appropriately. The sessions also focused on how to be a good provider of support. In essence, the group provided a medium in which activities could be carried out and skills could be developed through practice, feedback, and critique among group members.
Since a desired group outcome was employment, many of the activities were directed at helping participants develop skills and identify resources to find employment. While the temporal sequencing of sessions and activities are not fixed, activities were generally designed to build upon what was developed earlier. An outline of the objectives and illustrative activities and exercises are discussed for seven sessions.
