THE “PARENT GROUP” IN THE SPECIAL PRIMARY SCHOOL OF KALAMATA: ITS FRAMEWORK, RATIONALE, AND AIMS

V. Thomopoulou

Special School of Kalamata (GREECE)
Counselling as a science relies mostly on personality theories; therefore, it is essentially the domain for research and applications of major Psychology trends. Counselling is a reciprocal communication process, which typically involves providing help to individuals facing psychological problems. These problems are often related to a certain dysfunction in the individual’s interpersonal relationships or in his/her relationship to himself or herself. Group and individual counselling share the same principles and methods. Compared to individual counselling, outcomes are often more remarkable in Group Counselling. Within this framework, a “Parent Group” was established in the Special Primary School of Kalamata, initiated by the school’s psychologist and social worker. Sessions with parents did not solely address their children’s problems, such as autism, mental retardation, hyperactivity, and emotional issues; in fact, they focused to a greater extent on parents’ personal stories and emotions about situations they were experiencing.
