Leading any counseling group can be challenging. In particular, education groups can stretch a group leader’s skillset, because some participants in education groups are court ordered whereby they are forced to attend. For example, some DUI (driving under the influence) offenders may be less motivated to receive knowledge about their offense which can place the intent of the group to fail if the leader is unaware to this dynamic. Likewise, group settings with diverse populations can propose some unwelcoming viewpoints (Jacobs, Schimmel, Masson, & Harvill, 2016). Jacobs et al. (2016) asserts that “education groups are especially challenging when its members understanding is at various levels, and some members are more comfortable with the topic than others” (p. 41). I concur. Facilitating an education group can be laborious for group leaders, because not only is preparation and discernment part of leading a successful group, but the ability for group members to feel safe and humble takes trust. In addition, I believe that trust starts with the group leader. Malphurs (2003) asserts that it takes character, competence, clarity of direction, communication, and composure for leaders to build trust” (p. 52). Group members should feel at ease and ready for knowledge so that their growth is inevitable, and group leaders should commit to producing the best outcomes of each group member by keeping an open mind as some group members may struggle with the information they receive. An education group would benefit from a leader directed style. According to (Jacobs et al., 2016), a leader directed approach commands that “the leader has an understanding of the members needs and structures the group to meet those needs” (p. 22). This is comparable to Proverbs 18:15 (NIV) which says, “The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out”.
