Group Counseling with Parents: Feasibility, Reactions and Interrelationships. Monograph Number 5.
Shaw, Merville C.; Rector, William H.
This monograph reports upon data collected and analyzed in connection with a research project testing the feasibility of group counseling with parents. The group counseling was a part of the school guidance services. Data were collected in six school districts and based upon the experiences of 38 counselors and 53 parent counseling groups. An analysis of the parent post-series reaction sheet showed a highly positive attitude in parents participating in group counseling. This attitude was strengthened after a second year of counseling in the same district. An analysis of the written "counselor reactions to specific groups" (CRSG) showed that counselor responses became more positive the longer parents remained in their respective groups. The correlations between parent and counselor responses suggest that parents' enjoyment of the group experience and the benefits they gain from it may not necessarily be related. Attendance patterns were also analyzed. (PS)
