Technique and Facilitation of Developmental Groups.
Meyer, Marilyn M.
Counselors working with developmental groups need: (1) a thorough understanding of their group, (2) great skill, and (3) deep personal involvement. The author suggests specific characteristics for successful developmental groups: (1) the desire of the entire residence hall staff to be involved, (2) a co-ed group limited to eight members, and (3) an evolutionary pattern in the development of the group. Groups can provide: (1) support for resident assistants in becoming more sensitive to themselves and the students, (2) a close working relationship between resident hall staffs and the counseling center, and (3) a chance for counselors to become sensitive to the needs and problems of the campus and to create a more psychologically healthy climate on the campus.
