Is There Anything to —Encounter Groups'—by Kneeland A. Godfrey, Jr., (M.ASCE), Editor;
Serial Information: Civil Engineering—ASCE, 1976, Vol. 46, Issue 1, Pg. 67-68
Document Type: Feature article
Group therapy in some cases is working for Weight Watchers, Alcoholics Anonymous, drug addicts, couples whose marriages are in trouble. Here are brief case histories of some of these. The same idea can work on the job, by fostering the feeling that the entire organization is a team. Groups seem to work better for those in trouble, than do Encounter Groups for the mentally healthy. Possible reasons why are outlined. The goal of developing human resources — to the benefit of the employer and employee alike — rather than employer exploiting his manpower, is introduced.
