Abstract

Many counselor education programs use experiential groups to help students learn group leadership skills, group concepts and develop self-awareness. However, little is known about these groups from the students' perspective. Qualitative methodology was employed and eleven master's students were interviewed regarding their perceptions of participating in an experiential group. Participants believed they developed both skills and knowledge about groupwork. Recommendations for counselor educators are presented. ©Whiting and Birch Ltd, 2008.
