This paper represents an experimental attempt to assess a group counseling approach; it has as background a humanistic value on the part of the writer to actually implement a goal in a three dimensional setting. The goal is to work with students who do not fit within the framework of the school. The three-dimensional setting is for four public secondary schools. Specifically, the paper asks questions. The first question deals with whether or not a group counseling approach can be utilized in working with students who demonstrate hostile "acting out" behavior. The paper is also addressed to the question as to whether or not a group counseling approach can be effective. A partial answer has been provided by the objective data. The feelings and opinions of the participants are equally as, or more important an answer. Therefore, in assessing the value of this study, importance has been placed on both the data and the subjective opinions which emanated from the study.
