Bjornestad, Andrea; Mims, Grace Ann; Mims, Matthew
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v41 n3 p190-208 2016
The purpose of the study was to explore the experiences of counselors-in-training via student reflection journals as part of a service-learning project in a group counseling course. The counselors-in-training facilitated psychoeducational groups at an alternative high school. The Objective, Reflective, Interpretive, Decisional model was utilized to provide structure for adequate student reflections. The results indicate that service learning integrated into a group counseling course can positively impact student learning outcomes as well as self-efficacy in facilitating a group. Implications for future implementation and research are provided.
