The Effect of Sensitivity Group Participation Under Different Conditions on the Reduction of Racial Prejudice.
Hindman, Audrey; Forsyth, Douglas R.
This report outlines the procedures used for experimentally testing the effectiveness of a sensitivity group model in reducing racial prejudice among both black and white college students. The proposal is designed to explore the assumption that increasingly effective racial relations follow from increased understanding, acceptance, and tolerance among all members of the university community. Subjects for the study were drawn from a volunteer sample of black and white students residing in a single dormitory complex. Procedures outlining the assignment of subjects to groups, composition of groups, nature of the experimental treatment, instrumentation, and data analysis are described. (Author/HS)
