Group Counseling with College Underachievers: Comparisons with a Control Group and Relationship to Empathy, Warmth and Genuineness.
Dickenson, Walter A.; Traux, Charles B.
Some of the controversy concerning the efficacy of psychotherapy or counseling has been resolved by recent evidence that studies reporting no effects had indiscriminately lumped together the high and low therapeutic conditions which are associated with successful and unsuccessful outcomes. The present study extends these findings to a group of essentially neurotic underachieving college freshmen. The 24 experimental subjects (Ss) who received group counseling showed greater improvement in grade point average than 24 matched, no-counseling control Ss. Further, those counseled subjects who received the highest therapeutic conditions tended to show the greatest improvement. (Author)
