Summary

This paper has tried to describe some of the "experiential" techniques and methods used in a group counseling situation with blind adolescents. Also, it shows that by using these methods, the group advanced a little further and a little faster than might otherwise have occurred. During the clinical services meetings, the other group leaders stated that their groups were often avoiding confrontations of their feelings, while we were able to state that members of our group sometimes overwhelmed us with their insights. Possibly, this was because these techniques kept the members alert and involved, showed them that we were interested and would let them do and say things that would normally have been forbidden, and let them know that we wanted to offer a chance to experience new things. Because of this, their reactions and interactions were more spontaneous and "off-guard." (Author)
