Summary
From the Blurb: Working With Groups and using them properly is the basic key to a successful democratic society. Groups can free the individual rather than confine him; they represent an inadequately used resource. This book shows how groups and group action are related to important contemporary social concerns, including: The rising demand for equal rights from various segments of our society. The growing recognition of critical shortages in the helping professions, along with an increasing emphasis on the interdisciplinary approach. The impact of new educational media on the teaching-learning process. The author presents group techniques which consider the means as determining the final goal. He relates current pressures of society to the use of group techniques as a way to solve problems, and gives an understanding of the yardsticks to be used to determine the use and appropriateness of specific group techniques. He presents a philosophy of education which emphasizes the importance of early childhood experiences, and the role to be played by the school counselor of tomorrow
