Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(5), 402–404. Reviews the book, Advances in Experiential Social Processes, Vol. 1 edited by Cary L. Cooper and Clayton P. Alderfer (1978). This book is extremely timely and greatly needed. The contributors have written thoughtful, sound, and well-documented chapters. The book should encourage those engaged in experiential methods of human learning and change to examine carefully the premises and theories upon which they operate. The purposes of this volume, and presumably of forthcoming ones, are to study and document present research and other studies, to explore basic issues and questions sometimes neglected, and to indicate through descriptions of diverse practices and purposes the everwidening usage of the process. This is a greatly needed and valuable book. The scholarliness with which each chapter was prepared is evidence of its value. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
