From Structured Adolescent Psychotherapy Groups by Billie Farmer Corder Reprinted with permission from Professional Resource Press, Sarasota FL
Short open-ended questions are great to use at the end of each activity or classroom guidance lesson to elicit feedback and help bring closure.
According to author Arden Martenz "Small-group counseling is the backbone of elementary counseling." Problems facing young children are rooted in either peer groups or family groups and are best solved in small-group counseling.
