40 graduate counseling students were randomly assigned by sex to a marathon group (2 8-hr sessions), a shorter session group (8 2-hr sessions), a combination of marathon and shorter session group (1 8-hr and 4 2-hr sessions), and a control group to determine the impact of growth groups on the self-actualization of participants. The Personal Orientation Inventory, which was administered to all Ss before and after the group experience, indicated some significant positive movement for treatment groups. However, no single approach was found to be significantly more effective than the others. (8 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
