- n. A group engaged in sensitivity training in sessions with a trained leader.
One of the roots of the community movement was what has been called the T-group.
My T-group experience was a part of the “sensitivity group movement” that swept this country in the sixties and early seventies.
But the real payoff came in the so-called “T-group,” where we spent the greater part of our time.
I was the first one to speak in the T-group that night.
The experiment was sufficiently successful that this trainer group, or T-group, became the model for the sensitivity-group movement.
This is what happened to me and others in Mac Badgely’s group, in the Tech Group in Okinawa, and in Lindy’s T-group in Bethel, Maine.
I did not call it that yet, but I knew there was a connecting thread running through Friends Seminary, Mac Badgely’s group, the Tech Group on Okinawa, and Lindy’s T-group in Bethel, Maine.
