The Effects of T-Group Training and Group Video Recall Procedures on Affective Sensitivity, Openmindedness and Self-Perception Change in Counselors.
Cerra, Patrick Frank
This study investigated the relative effect of T group training and Group Video Recall (GVR) procedures in the growth of affective sensitivity, openmindedness, and self-perception in 17 Indiana University students majoring or minoring in Counseling and Guidance. Relationships among the three behaviors were also sought. The Rokeach Dogmatism Scale (Form D), the Affective Sensitivity Scale, and the Person Description Instrument were used. One group received T group training three hours daily for six days, whereas the other group received one hour of GVR and two hours of T group training daily. Both groups were pretested and posttested. These were among the findings and conclusions: (1) neither technique significantly affected the three behaviors; (2) gains in openmindedness are very negatively related to gains in self-perceived interpersonal warmth and acceptance under conditions of T group training for low dogmatic counselors in training; (3) gains in affective sensitivity are very negatively related to gains in self-perceived activity and expressiveness under conditions of GVR for highly dogmatic subjects.
