Summary

Two main problems were examined in this study: Does the providing of a direct formalized feedback experience to group participants accelerate their learning thereby producing greater changes in attitude and behavior? Does the group counseling experience produce a change in the participants' attitude and behavior? To measure behavioral and attitudinal change, the Interpersonal Perception Scale (IPS) was developed. It was constructed to measure behavior as it is rated by other group members and attitude as it is rated by the individual. The Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (TSCS) was the second instrument used to measure attitude. All subjects received a classroom lecture for two hours and then divided into four discussion groups for one hour. The subjects were randomly assigned to the discussion groups and the experimental treatment of direct formalized feedback was randomly assigned to two of these groups: All groups were given a pre-test during their second meeting and a post-test during their twelfth meeting. The authors concluded that the use of a direct formalized feedback technique in groups of this type produced behavioral changes which can be observed by other group participants. (Author)
