A Model for Action Oriented Structured Groups.
George, Robert J.
This presentation describes an experiential group design which can be employed with large, diverse populations. It is especially applicable at the university level. The design encourages self-clarification and self-confrontation on personalized issues and culminates in an individual commitment to action. Techniques such as "life space" drawings and "force field" analysis are employed in an attempt at aiding the participant in arriving at an integration of thought, feeling, and action regarding a significant personal issue. The design focuses almost entirely on the individual, using group communication and sharing toward this end. Each person's final commitment to action is the result of his or her own values and convictions. The presentation gives suggestions for using a modified version of the design for diverse populations and issues. Some of these issues include: campus, social, and political involvement; clarification of inter-racial tension areas,; and vocational decision making. (Author/WS)
