Practicum post #1 before presentation: Support Groups

For my practicum assignment I was assigned to look at support groups and I chose to do an ethnographic study on “loss of a pet” support groups. I found this project really hit home with me because I am such a dog lover and grew up with 2-3 dogs my entire life. Since it is so hard parting with them I thought that joining this support group would be both interesting and even maybe a little helpful. Tomorrow I plan on giving my presentation and asking the following question.


Question: Is not disclosing your identity unethical in an online support group?

Also I plan to show 30 seconds of this clip and I hope it will tug a little on everyone’s hearts like it did mine! I’ll keep everyone posted on my progress with research project!
