The Human Potential Movement: Body/Movement/Non-Verbal Experiencing.
Caldwell, Stratton F.
A social, humanistic movement focusing on the needs and concerns of more advantaged, affluent persons has emerged, called the "Human Potential Movement." The emphasis of the movement centers around group processes, small group experiences, and the search for personal, interpersonal, and organizational growth. The development and emergence of growth centers has probably been the major influence in determining the scope, direction, importance and spread of the Human Potential Movement. There is much diversity among growth centers, but basic purposes and intent are similar. Within the Human Potential Movement, and more specifically within growth centers, the body has rejoined the mind in a social, humanistic emphasis on the integrated, holistic, total human being. The emergence of growth centers in the United States during the past decade and the publication of considerable literature in the field of sport and athletics with strong humanistic emphases clearly indicate a need for deeper understanding of the meaning of physical education, body, movement, and nonverbal experiencing in the years ahead. (Included in this paper are descriptions of six growth centers and a list of body, movement, and nonverbal experiences.) (RC)
