"I enjoy watching graduate students develop in their confidence and personal awareness. My favorite verse is Philippians 4:8, written by Paul to the church at Philippi: 'Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy - meditate on these things.' It is so easy in our fast-paced world to get caught up in the tragedies of life. It takes a great deal more effort to think of something praiseworthy. When I think of all that God has done for me, I can then turn to giving back by helping others. When I meditate on these blessings, I feel closer to God."

Comparing Child-Centered and Psychoeducational Groups

Mary L. Fry

A Dissertation presented to the Faculty of the School of Psychology & Counseling, Regent University, in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy.

A comparison between Child-Centered Group Play Counseling (CCGPC), a psychoeducational group and a non-therapeutic control group resulted in three of four hypotheses being supported. Participants included 79 second and third graders, with one fourth grader, from seven elementary schools. The children had behavioral and social skills difficulties as reported by a teacher rating scale. Using the TRF, DOF and PSPCSAYC as pre-post measures, a two-way repeated measure ANOVA was used to analyze the data.
