Student Development Laboratory Groups: A Short Survey.
Gruver, Gene Gary
In a description of two kinds of undergraduate courses involving development groups, the author differentiates between one course format that alternates a lecture-laboratory approach and one that makes no distinction between lecture and laboratory components. Both categories, cover a variety of cognitive material such as personality theory, general psychology, therapeutic technique, family relationships, and marriage. Most groups use a modified sensitivity group or therapeutic approach, but role playing, autobiographies, journals, interviewing other and fantasy trips constitute supplemental techniques. While the purposes of the groups range from enhancing self-awareness to improving specific behavior, all groups share some commonalities: 1) students receive credit for taking the course; 2) students must learn specific course content; and 3) students use direct observation of their own behavior as a point of departure.
