As your group grows and considers how to generate new members, you also need to consider how new members will be selected. When determining which new members to add, it is suggested you follow a screening process to ensure they are a good fit for the group.
Develop a set of screening questions and criteria that you, as the group leader, will use to choose the members of the group. Begin with demographics questions (name, age, address, presenting issue, etc.) There should be a minimum of 10 screening questions, not including the demographics questions.
Write a 500-750-word paper that describes the criteria that you as the leader will use to choose the members for the group. Include the screening questions in your paper. Use a minimum of three scholarly references in addition to the course textbook to support the findings.
