Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v36 n2 p111-128 2011
Instructors associated with 82 master's-level counseling group psychotherapy training courses were surveyed in an attempt to better determine current training practices and student outcomes. The experience of dual-role dilemmas and problems related to attendance, student performance, inappropriate self-disclosure, and/or perceived violations of confidentiality were recorded. Results suggest: (1) counseling programs continue to utilize experiential groups roughly 90% of the time; (2) an increased appreciation for the potential for dual-role dilemmas and negative student experiences to occur; and, (3) a relatively modest frequency of problematic student real-world outcomes. Implications, limitations, and recommendations based upon these findings are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 3 footnotes.)
