The Effects of Basic Encounter and Task Training Group Experiences on Undergraduate Advisors to Freshmen Women.
Lynch, Ann Q.
The research described was designed to compare the effects of a basic encounter group experience upon undergraduate advisors to freshmen women with a traditional task training group experience and with no group experience. The subjects were randomly placed into the following groups: (1) the basic encounter group in which members were encouraged to become aware of their feelings and to explore relating to others; (2) the task training group where members were given information relative to being an effective advisor; and (3) the control group where members were given no group experiences. Instruments administered pre- and post-treatment were: (1) Personal Orientation Survey; (2) Acceptance of Self and Others Attitude Scale; (3) Least Preferred Co-Worker Scale; and (4) a description of a human relations problem. Results indicated that brief encounter group experiences do not change the dimension of self-actualization, but that the overall effectiveness of advisors was enhanced by some kind of group experience. Implications for further research are presented. (TL)
