A guided lesson that would be ideal for secondary schools that offer pre-college psychology. There were several factors that made this program successful. First it remained a small program in terms of the number of counselors, staff and cooperating teachers. Secondly, there was either a teacher or some professional resource person available at the school, who had the training, background, sensitivity, patience, and insight to work with adolescents in a program of this sort. Thirdly there was a careful selection of student counselors done as objectively as possible, and the program served as an alternative to suppression by trying to help teenagers make it through school. Fourthly, it should be noted that ANY public school can establish a peer group counseling program that will fir their peculiar or individual needs if the commitment and willingness to make it work are there. As George Bernard Shaw wrote: "Some men see things as as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say, why not. " Fifthly, and lastly, both student counselors and student counselors came to the realization found in the sacred writings of Buddhism that "through a man go out to battle a thousand times against a thousand men, if he conquers himself he is the greater conqueror."
