Small Group Counseling to Reduce Intolerant Behavior of Elementary School Children
This study was designed to determine the effectiveness of small group counseling to reduce intolerant behavior of elementary school children. The hypothesis stated that intolerant behavior would be reduced by 50% after treatment of ten counseling sessions were administered. Teachers rated all students in grades 5 and 6 as to the frequency of intolerance. Five students in each grade were targeted and then observed to establish a baseline. After the treatment, they were again observed, and teachers again rated all students. The frequency of intolerance declined for both grade groups, grade 5 - 38.5% and grade 6 - 41.4%. The hypothesis was rejected. Numerous limitations in design and procedure were cited.
