  18. 18. Group Problem Solving • The DPS program is considered a Secondary group because they exist to accomplish a task and achieve goals.
  19. 19. Descriptive approach Is an approach to problem solving that helps people understand how a group solves a problem, not how they should solve problems. The DPS program has minimal problems. Most problems are those of a student who has a need to be met by the services the program offers.
  20. 20. Cont. Most of the participants of the program @ Chaffey have mobility impairments which are met by the tram service and electric and manual wheelchair use provided by the program. During our observation time we witnessed one student helping another with some problems they were having in math. They talked about it and offered a meeting time to study together. Joe has laid out some ground rules to how a problem should be solved for the staff of the program including student workers. Respect for each other from student to staff and peer to peer is top concern. If respect is shown the problems will be minimal amongst students and staff.
  21. 21. Functional approach Emphasizes the performance of certain activities and effective communication to accomplish a group goal. The DPS programs main goal is to ensure the students of the program that their individual needs are met.
  22. 22. Prescriptive approach Identifies specific agendas and techniques to improve problem solving A student may not feel their needs are being met or not getting proper assistance can speak to any of the staff members or DPS counselor.
  23. 23. Prescriptive approach • A problem student, one abusing privileges of equipment, arguing with staff or another student, or being disruptive using the DPS lab will first be warned verbally, than if problems persist the student will be moved to a more isolated area with another verbal warning, if said student still remains a problem then they will be ejected from the lab which may result in termination of lab privileges.
