Group Counseling with Delinquent Youth.
Gilman, Merritt; Gorlich, Elizabeth
This publication deals with group counseling as a technique for dealing with delinquent youth. In a counseling session, youngsters discuss their experiences, feelings, and ideas under the guidance of a leader. Group counseling is recognized as an effective means of reaching hard-to-reach youth. It is hoped that through sharing, former attitudes may be altered or replaced by ones that are more acceptable to society. The publication stresses careful planning prior to the incorporation of group counseling. The booklet contains discussions of various aspects of the leader's role including: What does the leader represent to the group? What are his responsibilities to the members? What are the leader's goals for the group? How does he steer the members toward these goals? Group Counseling calls for an investment and dedication in time and effort on the parts of those involved.
