Interactional Model of Leadership
In your An Introduction to Group Work Practice text, the authors present information on the interactional model of leadership. What is this model, and how does it affect the process of the group? Provide an example that demonstrates your answer.


Case Work and Group Work
What is the difference between case work and group work? What interventions you would use with each? How are those interventions alike, and how are they different?
The Interactional Model of Leadership is a leadership style that emphasizes the importance of the relationship between the leader and the group members. It views leadership as a dynamic, ongoing process that involves the active participation of both the leader and the group members. This model focuses on the leader’s ability to create a positive and productive group environment by fostering open communication, building trust, and promoting active participation among group members.
For example, a leader using the interactional model of leadership would create a safe space for group members to share their thoughts and feelings, and actively listen to and respond to the needs of the group. They would also encourage group members to take on leadership roles, and provide guidance and support when needed.

Case work and group work are two different approaches to providing social work services. Case work is an individual-based approach that involves working one-on-one with clients to address their specific needs and concerns. Group work, on the other hand, is a group-based approach that involves working with a group of individuals to address common concerns and goals.
Interventions used in case work may include individual counseling, goal setting, and providing resources and referrals. In group work, interventions may include group counseling, group activities, and skill-building exercises.
Both case work and group work interventions involve active listening, problem-solving and goal setting. However, while case work interventions focus on addressing the specific needs of an individual client, group work interventions focus on addressing the common needs and concerns of a group of clients.
In terms of the interventions, case work may include more confidential and personal topics, whereas group work may be more general in nature and allow for the sharing of experiences and support among group members. Additionally, case work interventions may involve more direct guidance and support from the social worker, whereas group work interventions may involve more self-directed and peer-led activities.
