Assessment of Group Counseling Procedures on A Small College Campus. Final Report.
Krause, Victor C.
Concordia Teachers College opened a counseling center to serve 1300 students with a structured counseling program. However, the center was not able to serve the number of students who called for appointments. The next step was to investigate the effectiveness of group counseling procedures. Three groups were formed: (1) A-group counseling (N=22), (2) B-individual counseling (N=21), and (3) C-deferred counseling (N=28). The Mooney Problem Checklist (MPC) and the Edwards Personal Preference Schedule (EPPS) were used for pre and post test indices. Results showed that Group A maintained a desire for change and added aggression as a result of their group experiences. They also reacted more aggressively by indicating a significantly higher number of problems in four areas of the MPC. Group B showed no change on either scale. Group C added both change and aggression to their significant changes. (KJ)
