group formation

  1. 1. Reasons For Group Formation<br />By Chantelle Ghassibe & TaylahCamilleri<br />
  2. 2. Locality/geography<br />You may join a group based on the fact that it is in your local community. <br />E.g joining a local soccer club<br />
  3. 3. Gender<br />We may be grouped according to whether we are male or female based on social etiquette.<br />E.g Mother’s groups<br />
  4. 4. Shared interest/common goal<br />These groups form because group members have a particular interest.<br />E.gsuch as a hobby, artistic or sporting talent and/or a common goal such as a church or community fund raising group.<br />
  5. 5. Security<br />Being part of a group provides us with a sense of security.<br />E.gNeighbourhood watch group that voluntarily meets regularly to discuss and implement safety measures for the local community. <br />
  6. 6. Sexuality<br />Groups may be formed based on a person’s sexuality.<br />E.ginclude a variety of gay and lesbian groups within the community.<br />
  7. 7. Specific Needs<br />This type of group forms in responses to a particular need. It may be temporary and the group disbands when the need is met.<br />E.gvolunteer groups assisting in response to a natural disaster.<br />
  8. 8. Social Interaction<br />We all need to enjoy time with others. Groups formed with the primary goal of social interaction include a gathering at a party, a work social club and a Mother’s group. <br />
  9. 9. Culture<br />A group may form from a particular culture to enjoy communicating in their native language, eating traditional food and experience activities familiar to this culture.<br />
