Abstract

In this study, the impact of gestalt awareness training was evaluated as a component in a one-year preservice teacher training program. An unanticipated finding emerged when both experimental and control groups displayed a statistically significant decrease in "connectedness" (a general attitude of trust and positive affiliation with others). This major finding from the psychological scale (19) was subjected to a detailed statistical analysis, and was supplemented by intensive clinical interviews. Major alternative statistical and substantive hypotheses were explored utilizing the expanded data base, and possible implications for teacher training programs were considered.
