Group Techniques in Guidance.
Cox, Robert F.; Herr, Edwin L.
This monograph will examine group work along a continuum of content, process, and technique, based upon a philosophy that recognizes and places its stress upon the responsibility, integrity, and decision making ability of the individual. The first chapter, titled "Group Guidance," will contain a general discussion of the content to which this group of techniques is applicable, and of the processes involved in the successful pursuit of this area of guidance activity. In the second chapter, titled "Group Counseling," we will give our attention to this little understood, little used, and much needed technique. The discussion will deal in detail with the mechanics of group selection, and the dynamics of the group as it forms , moves forward, and separates. In the third chapter, under the title "Group Psychotherapy" those techniques will be discussed which are not attempted by the school counselor because of the depth of psychological or psychiatric background needed for adequate leadership. The fourth chapter of the monograph will deal very briefly with a number of miscellaneous aspects of group work such as: application of techniques by grade level, parental group counseling, and counselor self-analysis, which do not fit readily into the chapter and section divisions of the preceding part of the paper. It concludes with a brief annotated bibliography of books and articles. (Author)
