Kivlighan, Dennis M., Jr.; Goldfine, Debra C.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v38 n2 p150-58 Apr 1991
Examined group participant interpersonal style, group development stage, and endorsement of therapeutic factors. Classified critical incidents forms completed by 36 growth-group members. More affiliative participants emphasized cognitive factors; nonaffiliative participants emphasized behavioral factors. Universality and hope decreased and catharsis increased over initial stages of group development; guidance increased across stages; acceptance was important at engaged and individuation stages.
