The Effect of T-Group Experience on Participant's Level of Personal Functioning.
Das, Ajit K.
The study was designed to determine the effect of T-group experience on an individual's perceived level of personal functioning. An experimental group of eight counselor trainees, who received a T-group experience for an academic quarter, was compared with a control group of eight students, comparable in age and experience who were enrolled in a university extension class in psychology of personality. Pre and post measures of personal functioning were obtained using a self-anchoring scale. The mean gain scores showed a statistically significant difference in favor of the experimental group. Results indicate that (1) a T-group with personal growth orientation seems to have a positive impact on the personal functioning of participants, and (2) traditional methods of instruction do not appear to have any positive effect on students' level of personal functioning. References are included. (Author/SES)
