Group Work with High School Students at Risk of School Failure: A Pilot Study
Steen, Sam; Bemak, Fred
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v33 n4 p335-350 Oct 2008
Nine ninth graders at risk of school failure participated in a supportive group counseling intervention. Students' GPA in the treatment group did not significantly improve when compared to a control group. Additionally, the treatment group completed the Critical Incidents Questionnaire (CIQ) at the conclusion of the intervention, and a follow-up questionnaire designed by the authors one year later. The findings yielded contrasting results between the quantitative data and the questionnaire data. Implications for professional school counselors and future research are discussed.
