writing group

some suggestions regarding writing group model from Dr. Silvia:

  1. set proximal concrete, short-term goals in the group: write down each person’s goal and keep them in a folder; should meet every week or every other week, otherwise, goals are not considered as concrete enough
  2. stick to writing goals, not other professional goals: meetings are short, break out the prior goals and check off met and unmet goals
  3. social rewards, for example, buying coffee for people who meet their goals every time, intervene people who consistently fails goals
  4. have different groups for faculty and students
