This course aims to enrich psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, mental health professionals, addiction professionals, consultants, coaches and serious leaders in the understanding of communication within their teams through the use of structural dynamics theory. The course will offer a background in structural dynamics with in depth coverage of communication differences in low stakes versus high stakes situations. With a focus on leadership behavior in high-stakes situations, the practitioner will be able to intervene effectively in group dynamics and its outcomes. The textbook serves as a go-to resource for understanding and leading groups and teams. Clinicians interested in blending in strategies and thinking from a more industrial/organizational approach will find this text valuable.
