Abstract

 

Role conversion of leaders in group counseling can develop the potential power of a class, strengthen their cohesion and improve learning environment, which have been proved in a growing number of studies in this field. However, most studies are only confined to theoretical discussions and few studies concentrate on empirical studies on roles conversion of leaders in group counseling. The paper aims to study the functions of role conversions of leaders in group counseling. The study tools are comparative experiment empirical research methods. The result of empirical studies proves the assumptions that the former studies of role conversions of leaders in group counseling can improve the learning environment of a class, strengthen relations between teachers and students, and reduce the burden of study. The practical significances of this study are breaking through the bottlenecks of former studies by theoretical studies and empirical analysis.

 

Key words: Group counseling, roles conversion, empirical analysis.
