Abstract

In an exploratory study it was found that the expression of self-oriented needs can be rated in the discussion group situation without clinical background information about the need-structure of the participants. “Examination of data collected on 72 decision-making conference groups indicates that the self-oriented needs of the participants are negatively correlated with their satisfaction with its outcomes and are related to various processes which occur during the meeting itself, such as group conflict.” Categories and procedures, and observer reliability are discussed.
