A SENSITIVITY TRAINING IMPACT MODEL--SOME FIRST (AND SECOND) THOUGHTS ON THE EVALUATION OF SENSITIVITY TRAINING. EXPLORATIONS IN HUMAN RELATIONS TRAINING AND RESEARCH, NUMBER 3.
MASSARIK, FRED
THE AUTHOR STATES THAT SENSITIVITY TRAINING HAS BECOME A WIDELY USED AND DISCUSSED TRAINING METHOD, BUT THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE UNITY IN RESEARCH APPROACH. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER IS TO DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE FRAMEWORK THAT MAY ORDER EXISTING SENSITIVITY TRAINING RESEARCH AND GUIDE FUTURE RESEARCH EFFORTS, USING THE SENSITIVITY TRAINING IMPACT MODEL (STIM). THIS MODEL CONSIDERS THREE SETS OF HUMAN CHANGE THROUGH TIME--PRETRAINING, TRAINING, AND POST-TRAINING EXPERIENCE. STIM FOLLOWS THE INITIAL TOTAL POPULATION, PRESELECTING POTENTIAL PARTICIPANTS, THE SELECTION FUNNEL THROUGH WHICH SOME OF THEM MOVE BEFORE BECOMING READY TO TAKE PART IN THE PROGRAM, AND THE INTAKE PROCESS LEADING TO FINAL SELECTION. BOTH FOR TRAINEES AND TRAINERS, KEY PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL VARIABLES TO BE CONSIDERED IN RESEARCH ARE CLASSIFIED IN TERMS OF AN INTERPERSONAL MATRIX AND AN INTRAPERSONAL MATRIX. MEASUREMENTS OF BOTH MATRIXES PROVIDE MEASURE OF TRAINING OUTCOME FOR INDIVIDUALS AND FOR LARGER SOCIAL ENTITIES, SUCH AS ORGANIZATIONAL, FAMILY, AND FRIENDSHIP RELATIONSHIP PATTERNS. A GRAPHIC VERSION OF STIM AND EXTENSIVE REFERENCES AND FOOTNOTES ARE INCLUDED. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM NATIONAL TRAINING LABORATORIES, 1201 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036, FOR $2.00. (SM)
