THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SUCCESS IN GROUP COUNSELING AND DISCREPANCY IN LEVELS OF PERSONALITY.
CARLSON, WILLIAM A.
THE APPLICATION OF GROUP COUNSELING TO EDUCATION WAS INVESTIGATED WITH RESPECT TO ANALYSES OF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS AND PERSONALITY INTEGRATION FOR USE WITH DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE OF SOUND MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS. SUBJECTS WERE 15 NINTH-GRADE STUDENTS, DIVIDED INTO 2 COUNSELING GROUPS AND CONSIDERED TO BE GIFTED UNDERACHIEVERS. EACH GROUP MET SEPARATELY FOR A TOTAL OF 16 SESSIONS. CRITERION MEASURES OF SUCCESS IN GROUP COUNSELING WERE OBTAINED FROM THREE BASIC RATING SCALES AND THE "PICTURE STORY TEST" (A FANTASY LEVEL PROJECTIVE EXAMINATION). THESE WERE TESTED FOR RELIABILITY AND THEN RELATED TO MEASURES OF DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE SUBJECTS' LEVELS OF PERSONALITY. IT WAS FOUND AFTER THOROUGH STUDY THAT THE CRITERION OF SUCCESS IN GROUP COUNSELING WAS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED TO THE DISCREPANCY BETWEEN LEVELS OF PERSONALITY AT THE CONCLUSION OF COUNSELING. HOWEVER, THE USE OF SUCH A SMALL SAMPLE REQUIRED THAT THIS CONCLUSION BE REGARDED AS HIGHLY TENTATIVE. (JH)
