Creative Dramatics Techniques - A Tool For Group Counseling

Vicente E. Abrenica

Discipline: Education, Psychology



Counseling has become an integral part of school guidance programs but when needs of individual students are considered, very little time is actually available for unhurried consultation between students and their counselor. Interviews and observations of students by teachers and counselors consistently show that a great number of students need help. Yet, with the usual 1,000-1 student counselor ratio, the time for individual consultation is often reduced to the minimum, hence, the necessity for a new technique which could reach a number of students in one sitting.
