Evaluation of the Contributions of Video Tape Recordings to T-Group Processes.
Hudson, Wellborn R. III
The 1968 Summer NDEA Guidance Institute at the University of South Dakota studied the impact of video recordings on members of counseling groups to see what their perceptions were when they realized they would later be confronted with their behavior via the tapes. The 32 members of the Institute, practicing counselors in the public schools in the upper-midwest, were divided into four groups so that each group contained the same proportion of elementary and secondary counselors. Each group met four times a week for two hours under experienced group work leaders. Two weekly sessions were video taped, leaving two sessions for group review of the previous day's recording. Each group member filled out an opinionnaire after the review sessions. All groups were deprived of the use of the tape equipment for a period of two weeks and the effects of this deprivation were studied via a second opinionnaire. Generally, the groups took a positive view of their counseling sessions and were not much bothered by the presence of the video equipment. The counseling sessions seemingly increased in effectiveness as the eight weeks passed, with progressively deeper involvement of the group members emerging with time. Statistical data tables and reaction forms are appended. (Author/CJ)
