Proactivity: Personal Growth Groups for Residence Education.
Witchel, Robert I.
This paper contrasts the reactive and proactive approaches to personal growth and development for college students at a university. The potential of residence hall education and proactive growth activities is specifically pointed to, while all of student affairs are challenged to look at the more proactive growth model. Basic goals of a proactive growth program, specific experiences offered to students, review of research, as well as "new directions" are thoroughly covered to give the reader an opportunity to get an overall picture of a program of this nature. Some additional thoughts concerning the personal experience of being a proactive individual in a university setting are also shared. It was suggested that in the future a program could offer mini-workshops, each exploring a different approach to personal growth, such as sense awareness, fantasy, dreamwork, body movement, body message, non-verbal, and gestalt-awareness training.
