Summary

Teachers in 23 elementary schools and three junior high schools were invited to participate in counseling groups. Groups were successfully formed in 20 schools. Teacher reactions to a first and a second series of five group counseling sessions were positive. Teacher reactions by age, years of educational experience, and years at the present school are presented. The reactions of elementary and junior high school teachers were compared. Correlations among the teacher reaction items were analyzed. The counselors were positive about the rapport, interaction, and freedom from insistence upon a didactic approach during their group sessions. However, they were cautious in generalizing about group outcomes and reported moderate amounts of hostility. The correlations between parent and counselor responses are discussed. Teacher attendance patterns for the group counseling series are analyzed. Generally, results show that: (1) public school guidance personnel can do the job of teacher group counseling; (2) teachers will accept the opportunity for group work when offered; (3) higher attendance patterns were found among teachers of culturally deprived children; (4) teacher reactions are generally positive; and (5) public school counselor perceptions of group process variables are valid in terms of their relationship to teacher perceptions of outcomes and attendance patterns.
