This paper presents counseling groups conducted in the school. It includes a theory of counseling groups with children and adolescents, and a modality named "expressive supportive". These groups focus on self-expressiveness and group support. They are process oriented and semi-structured. The structure is not based on a specific content but rather on therapeutic techniques used to move the group process. Children learn about self through the interpersonal interaction in the group. A series of studies point to the efficacy of these groups and suggest variables that have an impact on the outcomes of group intervention. The need for counselor training is highly recommended.
