Guidance and Counseling Component, Group Counseling Course. Career Development Project.
Reinhardt, Judy; Hanselman, Charlotte
The 14 activities in the group counseling course, designed for the seventh grade level, concentrate on the individual goal of heightened self-awareness in order to make life career decisions. Group objectives emphasize: personal interest and values evaluation; better understanding of influences on personal values, of individual differences, of diverse views, and of one's abilities; and the development of a positive self-concept. The structure and scheduling of this three-week course involves eight students per group with three 30-minute group sessions a week. The lessons are divided into nine sessions with 14 coordinated game activities dealing with self-understanding and value clarification. The technique of role playing is often used. Each lesson includes domain, goal, performance objective, group activities, and outcome measure. Pre-test and post-test materials (positive values continuum) are provided. (JB)
