I have also come to realize that I am gifted when it comes to work with children. In spite of this fact, I realize that I am yet to offer the best service possible to those that I serve, since I lack vital counseling skills.
Today, the world is becoming a multiethnic, multiracial and a multilingual society and issue of stereotyping is inevitable. Therefore, there is a need for counseling to address issues of race, ethnicity and cultural differences that are facing our society.
Especially, amongst elementary students group counseling has been found to significantly change disciplinary problems that have in turn impacted on the student's academic achievements (Shechtman, 2002).
