Encouraging Institutional Change.
Sherman, Robert
Many counselors, psychologists and other growth specialists functioning in institutions seek ways of improving them but are frustrated by feelings of lack of personal influence or expertise. Attempts at change are often aborted or actually programmed for failure by professionals who expect rejection of their ideas. In many instances, professionals do not even try to initiate change because they are at a loss as to how to begin in their particular settings. This paper describes a model developed by a team of multi-disciplinary professionals which facilitates institutional change through training in group process, using Action Group Counseling (AGC). AGC is a teaching-learning model which integrates knowledge, skills and feelings in an intensive theme-centered group experience which involves subject content, personal feedback, practice, evaluation and reinforcement.
