Effective Groups: Guidelines for Participants. Keys to Community Involvement Series: 9.
This booklet is written for anyone who is a member of a group and who, by personal behavior, wants to influence the group toward productive and satisfying ends. The contents of the booklet are divided into three sections. In the first section information is presented on the needs a person brings to a group--needs for feeling included, having power, and giving and receiving affection. The second section gives guidelines for communication skills, speaking for yourself, dealing with differences, and maintaining openness. The final section briefly describes four stages of small-group development and suggests ways to assist the group to operate effectively. (Author/MLF)
