Debra Noumair's Process Consultation Group
Process Consultation Supervision: Doctoral students work as process consultants to weekly work groups in ORLJ 6343, Practicum in Organizational Change and Consultation, and meet for supervision on a weekly basis. Process consultation is an intervention model employed to promote effective group functioning at all levels of organizational life. By focusing solely on group process as it relates to task accomplishment, the process consultant develops a unique set of skills that have broad application to work with individuals, groups, and organizations.
Supervision is constructed to enhance learning at both the group level and the individual level. In order to promote integration of learning related to group and organizational dynamics, a group-as-a-whole framework is emphasized; in order to promote individual development, learning focused on the "self-as-instrument" is underscored. Students are required to participate in Process Consultation for 2 semesters.
