Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(10), 757–759. Reviews the book, Group Counseling. 2nd ed by Merle M. Ohlsen (1977). Group counseling is based upon the learning model. Those who accept and use the treatment model described in this book believe that their clients seek assistance when they recognize that their learned behaviors are not enabling them to function satisfactorily or that they are confronted with developmental tasks with which they have not learned to cope… Although this book is primarily concerned with helping reasonably well-adjusted persons, the writer agrees with Szasz (1973) that it is a mistake to look upon treatment of the emotionally disturbed as only medical treatment. Disturbed persons have learned to cope inappropriately with their problems. This book will provide the counselor with everything he or she needs to know about group counseling.
