( Vol-3,Issue-9,September 2017 )

Group, Counselling, Strategies, Stimulating, Literacy.


The focus of this paper is on stimulating interest in literacy: which is dwindling in Nigeria for reasons that range from reluctance on the part of students to 'sorting' as encouraged by teachers. This is an educational problem which any counsellor should he concerned about. Group counselling has an advantage of facilitating group dynamics through exploring problems nurtured and solved in the therapeutic environment so created. The multi-dimensional approach being advocated in order to tackle the problem of illiteracy and poor reading culture has warranted the recommendations made. In conclusion the paper advocates that literacy and reading should be viewed by counsellors as an educational problem that requires urgent attention.
