Current Issues and Perspectives in Group Work. A Counseling Monograph.
Roland, Catherine B., Ed.; Conneely, Rebecca J., Ed.
Group counseling presents counselors with an increasing complexity of issues. This collection of papers addresses a range of current issues and perspectives for group counselors. The first article examines self disclosure, particularly the effects of counselor self-disclosure on the therapeutic relationship in group counseling. Clinical supervision of group counselors is outlined next, with a discussion of standards of supervisory practice, ethical and professional issues, and projections for accountability of group counselors. A personal perspective is presented in the following article, in which a practitioner's experience as an African-American co-facilitator of a predominantly white group is used to identify and discuss issues for non-majorities who facilitate such groups. Group work in the treatment of bulimia nervosa is explored next, along with a review of the literature and an overview of the various approaches to the application of group work with bulimics. This is followed by an exploration of the use of cultural identity group counseling with Native Americans college students, featuring an overview of group personality as applied to this population. The final piece examines the use of group interventions as an effective way of addressing the specific needs of Hispanic youth in cultural transition. (RJM)
