Sensitivity Training and the School Teacher: An Experiment in Favorable Publicity.
Boller, Jon D.
The workshop discussed was designed to initiate skeptical school personnel to the T-group approach, while providing a safe and non-threatening atmosphere for exposure. Workshop participants consisted of 24 "teachers of the gifted." An attempt was made to integrate procedures from a wide variety of group approaches so as to provide the participants with experiences in more than one kind of group. Using relationship as a measure of outcome, it was hypothesized that a high degree of relationship would exist in the groups, and that pre-test scores on a relationship measuring instrument would be lower than post-test scores. The results indicated that post-test as compared with pre-test "total relationship" scores changed significantly and in a positive direction. It was concluded that with careful planning and an emphasis on allowing the new participant to proceed at his own pace, the group experience can be fruitful and rewarding. (Author/BW)
