School Counselors' Experiential Training in Group Work
Bore, Samuel K.; Armstrong, Stephen A.; Womack, Ashley
Journal of School Counseling, v8 n26 2010
School counselors' perceptions of the efficacy and satisfaction of their experiential training in group work were investigated. An exploratory factor analysis (n = 304) revealed four salient factors: leader characteristics, leader responsibilities, child/adolescent group leadership and adult group leadership. A majority of participants indicated they were not satisfied with their experiential training and supervision in group work. A multiple regression analysis showed a statistically significant relationship between experiential training and utilization of psycho-educational groups in schools. Implications for school counselor preparation programs are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
