Sensitivity Training in Teacher Education.
O'Hare, Mary Rita D.
Teacher Education News and Notes, v19 n3 p8-9 14 May-Jun 68
Sensitivity training, a teaching-learning experience, is a group process consisting of continual interaction experiences which can effect behavior change through self-understanding in participants. Feedback is the most important element in effecting behavior change and can be expressed through two techniques: verbal, used to sensitize the participant toward focusing on the present and articulating the difference between intellectualizing and expressing feeling (such as role playing, self-description analysis, and questioning); and nonverbal used to achieve authentic and spontaneous expression of feelings (such as touch communication). Sensitivity training has been integrated into the learning experiences for teacher education at Lehman College on both the undergraduate and graduate levels to produce teachers who will be able to understand and express themselves effectively.
