Occasionally, I use group counseling in the elementary school. Group counseling is used when 3-8 students in the same grade ranges are working on the same set of skills. Many times group counseling is used to help develop friendship or social skills. The students can learn from me, but can also learn by observing and interacting with other students. In this case, I try to make sure the group dynamics will benefit the students, and not detract from what we are trying to learn. Small groups meet weekly, and have a specific focus. The group activities include games, crafts, stories, videos, role playing, and practicing our new skills.
