Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v36 n2 p97-110 2011
Problem-focused interventions are considered to be one of the most effective group counseling strategies with adolescents. This article describes a problem-focused group counseling model, Solving Problems Together (SPT), that focuses on working with students who struggle with negative peer pressure. Adapted from the teaching philosophy of problem-based learning, SPT provides students with the opportunity to work toward positive solutions for overcoming peer pressure, while simultaneously helping them to increase their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
