Practical Group Counseling for Parents: An Application for the Public Schools.
Stapp, James L.; Whittlesey, R. R.
In order to provide a direct service to parents and to mobilize a cooperative effort between school and home, a series of group counseling sessions were planned. The project was designed to permit flexibility in group composition, goals attempted, discussion contents, meeting times, and physical arrangements. The initial lack of formal direction stimulated various staff members to promote parent groups with programs divergent in nature. The following groups were started from this frame of reference and have been carried through to termination: (1) a group of junior and senior high school students, teachers, and school personnel; (2) a group for parents of elementary children whose problems were primarily academic but with a wide variety of severity; and (3) a series of discussion groups sponsored in cooperation with the local mental health center. It is hoped that a more formal research policy used in conjunction with periodic follow-up and review will provide sounder direction. (Author/BW)
