Stokes, Joseph P.; Tait, Raymond C.
These materials, consisting of a trainer's manual and a participant's manual, are designed to meet the need for a balanced approach to training counselors and other helping professionals in group counseling and group facilitation skills. The emphasis of these materials is on the experiential aspect of training through exercises designed to promote personal growth. The trainer's manual contains goals and objectives for each unit, time and activity schedules, exercise instructions, and detailed lecturettes. The participant's manual addresses the following areas: (1) concept of groups; (2) goals, process, and content of groups; (3) curative factors; (4) stages of group growth; (5) selection of members for groups; (6) leadership; and (7) intervention practices. The appendices provide references, workshop evaluation instruments, and exercises focusing on feedback and "getting started" techniques. (Author/HLM)
