Counseling is a relationship in which the counselor helps the client mobilize resources to resolve problems or modify attitudes and values. Group counseling is an integral part of that process. This course is presented as a comparative study of counseling theories and practices as applied to groups, introducing major approaches, strategies, and applied skills in group counseling and examining the purpose and function of different types of counseling groups. To gain experience students will participate in several group counseling sessions in the classroom setting. Students gain awareness of their own personal philosophy of the group process and which approaches are most appropriate to particular situations.
