BOOK EXCERPT:

Although many types of school professionals may serve as counselors of students, they may not always be aware of the specific skills effective counseling requires. INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP COUNSELING IN SCHOOLS identifies the elements that constitute good counseling practice, and reviews the theoretical and practical aspects of a variety of specific approaches to counseling in school settings. The volume opens with a review of the factors that influence counseling practices in school settings, the types of referral procedures commonly observed, and the provision of counseling as a direct or indirect service. It then offers an in-depth examination of the different stages of counseling at the individual and group levels. Practical guidance is provided on how to: * identify and recruit students for counseling * establish primary goals and objectives * conduct sessions at the individual or group level * and evaluate the effectiveness of the counseling. For those counseling at the individual level, the book features a detailed account of the counseling process from problem identification and analysis, through intervention, to evaluation, encompassing the types of problems best addressed one on one. Also examined are practical issues of implementation, with useful detailed strategies for dealing with common student problems. The section on group counseling reviews both process and content and outlines key steps to establishing and maintaining successful groups. Crucial process skills and practical leader techniques are described in detail. Finally, fundamental ethical and legal issues are given due consideration, with straightforward guidelines delineated for decision making in the school setting. For all school practitioners-- teachers, guidance counselors, administrators, social workers, school psychologists, and consultants who wish to successfully implement counseling interventions-- INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP COUNSELING IN SCHOOLS provides a thorough yet practically oriented review of effective techniques.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Practical Handbook of Group Counseling is written mainly as a primer to be used in group work with children, adolescents, and parents. The first edition was used by over three hundred colleges and universities in the United States. Its unique design allows the reader to use it as a ready reference for practical information. It is presented as a text that can challenge the individual's ideas and upon which the counselor can develop techniques that will fit his/her personality and meet the needs of the group. The text was the first comprehensive practical book in this field. It is a synthesis of the various problems and successes that the counselor may encounter and offers one model that may be useful in resolving and/or enhancing some of these issues. The author utilizes the public school setting as the vehicle for presenting his material. Since the school is a cross section of the population, the model proposed here can be adapted to other social agencies that utilize group counseling techniques. The author, Dr. Sheldon D. Glass, has a significant background in group work and in child and adolescent development. He is uniquely qualified in this area because he has completed formal training in education, adult psychiatry, child psychiatry, and pediatrics.
