The Significance of Sibling Position and the Frequency of Participation by Adults in Group Counseling Activities.
Dale, John H., Jr.
An investigation into the characteristics of individuals who participate, and those who do not participate, in group counseling activities was conducted. The purpose of the study was to study the possible significance of sibling position as a behavioral determinant in an adult's life with respect to participation. A survey questionnaire was mailed to 600 graduate students; 314 sent usable responses. The questionnaire contained eight items. Answers were analyzed. It was found that sibling position does have some influence over an individual's adult life. The following conclusions were drawn: (1) Only children participated in more group counseling activities than did other sibling positions; (2) Males did participate in more group counseling activities than did females; (3) Individuals in the 45- to 49-year-old category engaged in more group counseling activities than those in the 20-29-year-old groups; (4) Education majors participate in more group counseling activities than other majors; (5) Individuals who continued their schooling without a break participated in more counseling than individuals with interruptions in their schooling.
