Do you want to know how your group is doing?
The OQ®-GQ measures three domains:
- Positive Bonding – is defined as the sense of belonging or attraction that a member has to the group, its members and its leader(s) that creates a positive atmosphere which allows members to feel genuinely understood and appreciated.
- Positive Working – is defined as the ability of the group to agree upon and work toward treatment goals in an effective manner.
- Negative Relationship – is defined as lack of trust, genuineness, and understanding as well as friction and distance that might exist between the group, its members or its leaders.
High percentiles on this measure are linked to good participation, positive client outcome, and low attrition in groups.
Low percentiles on this measure do not suggest that clients are not good candidates for group, but highlight areas where therapists may work to train and educate clients in preparation for group.
The OQ®-GQ is available in the The OQ® Analyst.
