A Comparative Study of an Individual and a Group Approach to Educational and Vocational Guidance.
This report was undertaken to determine whether or not a particular approach to group guidance was as effective as a more traditional, individual approach to helping students to move toward the selection of an academic major or vocational choice. Subjects were students at Brigham Young University who requested vocational counseling. The Process was the same for both the experimental and control groups, except for the change in the experimental group to group counseling rather than individual counseling. The findings of the study support the hypothesis that group guidance can be as effective, and make more efficient use of the counselor's time than does individual guidance. In addition, subject satisfaction can be as good when guidance is given in groups as when given individually. (KJ)
