Introduce your group work project by explaining how this project will meet the needs of service users in this practice field and how it will help address some of the associated social issues for the service users. 2. Describe the practice issue the group will be designed to address. What type of group is most appropriate for these service users? What is your target group – how will you invite these individuals to participate in the group? How will you determine the group aims? What form of group facilitation is most appropriate? What issues might arise and how will you address them? Other considerations include composition, size, meeting frequency, venue and communication.
