The Influence of Secure Emotional Expression on Team Effectiveness
Bailey, Emily; Dewitt, Matt
Online Submission
The present study examined the relationship between group effectiveness and secure emotional expression over the course of a 10 week period. The participants consisted of 12 college students who were enrolled in a senior seminar on teamwork. Participants worked in two groups of six and participated in a group meeting each week that consisted of a check-in, activity, and a debriefing. After each group meeting, participants completed surveys. These surveys contained questions from the Therapeutic Factors Inventory (TFI) and a book (Johnson & Johnson, 2009) that included exercises on group effectiveness. The hypothesis for this study was that group effectiveness and secure emotional expression would have a significant positive correlation over time. Results from the surveys did not support the hypothesis.
