SELF CONCEPT CHANGES AMONG ALCOHOLIC PATIENTS IN MADISON (INDIANA) STATE HOSPITAL RESULTING FROM PARTICIPATION TRAINING IN GROUP DISCUSSION.
SHAY, EARL R.
TO INVESTIGATE THE THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS ON THE SELF CONCEPT OF PARTICIPATION TRAINING IN GROUP DISCUSSION, 18 INSTITUTIONALIZED MALE ALCOHOLICS (AVERAGE AGE 42.5 YEARS, SCHOOL GRADE ACHIEVEMENT 11.2 YEARS) UNDERWENT THREE HOUR SESSIONS OF GROUP DISCUSSION DURING 12 DAYS IN FEBRUARY 1963, FOLLOWING A CONTROL PERIOD OF 11.8 DAYS. THE BULTER-HAIGH Q-SORT WAS ADMINISTERED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE CONTROL AND TRAINING PERIODS. RATING SCALES WERE FILLED OUT BY THE INVESTIGATOR, FOUR NURSES, AND THE SUBJECTS THEMSELVES. INCREASED INTEGRATION OF PERSONALITY (MEASURED BY THE INDEX OF SELF-REGARD SCORES) AND ADJUSTMENT OF PERSONALITY (MEASURED BY THE Q-ADJUSTMENT SCORES) OCCURRED DURING THE TRAINING PERIOD. ONLY INTEGRATIVE CHANGES TOOK PLACE DURING THE CONTROL PERIOD. RATINGS OF PERSONS ASSOCIATING WITH THE PATIENTS WERE MORE CONGRUENT WITH CHANGES IN THE INTEGRATION SCORES, WHILE THE SELF-RATINGS WERE MORE CONGRUENT WITH THE CHANGES IN ADJUSTMENT SCORES. THE DATA INDICATE THAT TRAINING CONTRIBUTES TO INTEGRATIVE AND ADJUSTIVE CHANGES IN THE SELF CONCEPT AND IS THEREFORE THERAPEUTIC. CHANGES IN THE INTEGRATION OF THE PATIENT PRODUCE BEHAVIORAL CHANGES APPARENT TO OTHER PERSONS, WHILE CHANGES IN THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE PATIENT PRODUCES CHANGES APPARENT TO SUBJECTS THEMSELVES.
