Experiential Growth Group in Counselor Education: A Review of Its Pedagogy, Research, and Ethical Dilemmas
Zhu, Peitao
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v43 n2 p144-165 2018
The experiential growth group (EGG) is a common pedagogical activity employed in counselor education and is required by CACREP and ASGW standards. However, various parameters of such a training modality were not specified. The author first reviewed the multitude of current EGG delivery methods and student experiences in EGG. Then, 3 aspects of the EGG practice (i.e., pedagogy, research, and ethical dilemmas) were discussed by incorporating the existing theoretical and empirical literature. Implications for each aspect were discussed. This review highlighted the need for an intentional integration of theoretical perspectives and empirical evidence in future EGG practice.
