Sensitivity Training...Is It Really Therapy In Disguise?
Mezoff, Robert M.
Classification of current group therapies by three main criteria provides a useful conceptualization of why therapy is sometimes difficult to distinguish from the NTL-model T-group. The appropriateness of sensitivity training based on the criteria of "client normality" identifies several perspectives, including the futility and inadvisability of attempting to distinguish between "sick" and normal persons. It is suggested that the distinctions made between therapy and sensitivity training are, in part, a function of the personal motives of the professionals in both these areas. (Author)
