Abstract

D. A. Kolb's (1984) 4 processes of experiential education are presented as guidelines for humanistically based training in group counseling. Specific training activities are described, and recommendations for improving training methods are outlined. The authors present qualitative data obtained from graduate counseling students who participated in these activities and provide recommendations for research.
