Stephens, Derk; Jain, Sachin; Kim, Kioh
Education, v130 n3 p509-512 Win 2010
This paper examines literature that supports the use of group counseling techniques in the school setting to teach social skills to children and adolescents with special needs. From the review of this literature it was found that group counseling is a very effective way of addressing a variety of social skills problems that can be displayed by very differing populations within the school setting. The implications of this research for the school counselor are included, as well as some cautions to consider before applying group counseling to students in the schools.
