A group of overweight adults wanted to lose weight. The approach that proved effective in bringing lasting results for most members consisted of medical information, diet,exercise, a system of rewards and punishments, greater self-awareness, and the support from the group. Similar results were obtained by a treatment approach with cardiac patients in adhering to a salt-free diet, exercise,rest,and in accepting the medical regimen. The group provided the means for diagnosing emotional problems related to physical difficulties, which were then approached by the group and individuals.
The reciprocal model serves both the individual and society. It sees the individual largely as an abstraction that can be studied, understood, and treated only in relation to the many systems and subsystems of which he or she is a part ,it views the individual as being created,influenced, and modified by his or her relationships, social institutions, and the inter-dependency between society and the individual. Papell and rothman have written:The reciprocal model presupposes an organic ,systemic relationship between the individual and society…this interdependence is the “focus”for social work and the small group is the field in which individual and societal functioning can be nourished and mediated…
Unlike the remedial model, the reciprocal model does not begin with a priori prescriptions of desired outcomes. However, it does conceive of an ideal group state, namely a system in mutual aid. Such a system is not dependent upon the specific problem to be resolved by the group but is a necessary condition for problem solving.
