Abstract

The purpose of the paper was to examine the basic stages of group process as it pertains to the mentally retarded adult. As a group develops, there are noticeable differences in individual behavior and the structure and functioning of a group. Theorists have found it useful to perceive the group as moving through a number of stages during its life (Northen, 1969; Yolam, 1985). The identification of stages provides diagnostic clues for the counselor. That makes it possible for the counselor to understand where a group is in its development and what the counselor can expect in the future (Northen, 1969) along with what, if any, interventions from the counselor would be appropriate.
