This condition also become more difficult due to group guidance services during the pandemic. The target of this service is BK teachers in Bekasi. Therefore, this service was made to improve BK teacher’s ability in giving a group counseling service. Initially, this service was designed with an offline system (offline), but in the pandemic period, the service was changed to online system (online). The stages carried out are the same as according to the initial plan, namely assessment, workshop, practice and evaluation.

Based on the aspect of the results, the target of this service is achieved that BK teachers increase their skills to conduct group guidance, and there is a change in the condition of student empathy.
