Preparation for Group Counseling in the United States: A Directory of Programs, Characteristics, and Personnel--1983.
Huhn, Ralph; And Others
This directory was developed from responses of 73 colleges and universities to a survey conducted by the Association for Specialists in Group Work to ascertain the amount and kinds of instruction offered in group counseling. Items chosen for use in the directory include: the level at which the program is taught and the number of courses at each level, a rank ordering of the profession of origin of the students in the program, the client populations on which the program is focused, the typical annual student enrollment, the theoretical-philosophical base of the program, teaching methods used in the program, and a listing of group specialists on the faculty. Additionally, each entry includes the name and address of a contact person. Programs presented in this directory can be compared with each other and with general and specific guidelines discussed in the introduction. The body of the directory is presented in alphabetical order by institution name. It is cross-indexed by institution and by state. A further index lists faculty members alphabetically. A summary table is provided which lists in alphabetical order all the institutions in the directory with their responses to survey questions. The survey used to gather directory information is included in the appendix. (NRB)
