Group Counseling In Schools: Annotated Bibliography

Crepsi, tony D (2009). Group counseling in the schools: legal, ethical, and treatment
issues in social practice. Psychology in Schools, 46(3), 273-279.
This article closely examines different ethical, legal, and treatment issues that arise in school group counseling. The author starts by looking at some of the psychological issues that effect school aged children. He also suggest some appropriate topics to offer group counseling on such as a divorce group, a drug and alcohol abuse group, or a physical abuse group. The article goes on to explain several different types of group intervention such as educational guidance groups, counseling groups, and therapy groups. Five different stages of groups; forming stage, storming stage, norming stage, and the performing stage are broken down into 4 subset stages for clearer explanation. After addressing the group types and stages, legal and ethical issues such as consent, confidentiality, notification, member selection, choosing group topics, dangerous behavior, parental disclosure, dual relationships, counseling/progress notes, and boundaries are explored.
I found this article to be very informative and helpful. I liked the way the author broke down the five stages of counseling into four more sub phases, these sub phases are ones that are easy to identify. Which can help in tracking how well or how quickly the group is forming and growing. Once looking back upon these stages I was able to reflect on my group work with preschoolers who have social, emotional, and behavioral disturbances. I could identify how most of the children who have been in my group for 3 or more months are in the commitment subset of the norming stage. However, two of my children who started less then a month ago are still in the confusion subset of the forming
stage. Because I work with this population I found the article to be very helpful. It is always good to refresh ones self on legal issues. It was good to read another’s tips on how to handle the issues of parental disclosure, and dangerous behaviors, because I deal with both of these regularly and often find my self questioning how much to disclose to parents and how much I need to with hold for the sake of the therapeutic relationship with the child. I work very hard to build trust with each child in my group and sometimes disclosing one thing to a parent can destroy that trust and the relationship.
