Waltman, Douglas E.; Zimpfer, David G.
Small Group Behavior, v19 n2 p171-84 May 1988
Used meta-analysis to examine duration of group experience and structure provided by leader in counseling groups from 26 studies. Group composition appeared to have greatest effect in unstructured group which was relatively long in duration. Leaders using short-term, structured groups may be less concerned with composition, as its potential effect is diluted by these other factors. (Author/NB)
