We explore the feasibility of supplementing traditional group work pedagogic tools with watching group-themed reality and scripted television programs in order to convey group dynamics and concepts. Students view television programs through a group leader’s lens and analyze the group dynamics. Advantages and limitations of this resource are reviewed and implications for counselor educators are discussed.
