Among the helping professions a common concept is the support group. "The social-professional support system (group) affords members ••• opportunities for analyzing problems they encounter and discussing how they feel about these problems. It provides a structure for support and rewards" (Moracco and McFadden, 1980, p. 63). From a review of the literature it is apparent that many support groups both inside and outside the helping professions have been created and utilized. For instance, outside the school counselor's domain, groups such as the Compassionate Friends, Families Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous, Smokenders, and Widowed Persons have all served as support groups for people in need. (McCormack, 1981, p. 2)
