RESEARCH--FAMILY GROUP CONSULTATION AND THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR.
ZWETSCHKE, EARL T.
A Q-SORT WAS USED TO MEASURE ATTITUDINAL CHANGE BROUGHT ABOUT BY FAMILY GROUP CONSULTATION. NINE FAMILY MEMBERS OF THREE FAMILIES WERE GIVEN THE Q-SORT AT THE BEGINNING OF COUNSELING AND AGAIN 8 WEEKS LATER. THESE TWO SORTS ASKED THE FAMILY GROUP MEMBERS TO RATE THEIR IDEAL SELF AND THEIR PERCEIVED SELF. THESE RATINGS WERE CORRELATED WITH AN INDEX OF PERSONAL ADJUSTMENT, A SORT WHICH SHOWED HIGH INTER-RATER CORRELATIONS FOR THE STAFF COUNSELORS. THE DATA SHOWED THAT THE Q-SORT IS A FAIRLY RELIABLE MEASURE OF INDIVIDUAL PROGRESS IN COUNSELING AND SERVES AS AN EVALUATION OF THE COUNSELING PROGRAM. THROUGH EXAMPLES OF THE MEMBERS OF ONE FAMILY, IT WAS SHOWN HOW THE SORTS COULD BE CORRELATED. EVALUATION OF INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING GOALS IS ONE AREA OF FAMILY GROUP CONSULTATION REMAINING TO BE EXPLORED. THE EFFECTS OF THE METHOD ON "ACTING-OUT" TEENS AND YOUNGER CHILDREN, ON FAMILIES OF DIFFERENT SOCIOCULTURAL LEVELS, AND ON FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE PRIMARILY OBSERVERS IN THE GROUP NEEDS TO BE EVALUATED.
