Activity Group Guidance: A Developmental Approach for Counselors.
Hillman, Bill W.; And Others
This document discusses Activity Group Guidance (AGG) which is viewed as a useful tool for counselors who wish to include developmental guidance as part of their programs. AGG is a process in which group participants experience and discuss one or more guidance principles through the planning and completing of some task or project. One group purpose calls for the leader and group members to work together to complete the task. A second purpose is to use the group process and experiences involved in completing the project to learn a guidance principle. The content of AGG includes a planned cognitive and/or psychomotor activity with an affective focus. The three stages usually involved in the process of implementing a group session are: (1) warmup discussion, (2) activity implementation, and (3) followup discussion. The author describes and evaluates a comprehensive AGG program. Specific suggestions are offered to counselors who wish to start activity groups in their own schools. (Author/PC)
