In order to gain a clearer understanding of the treatment process in group therapy, the authors devised a questionnaire for observers to use in describing group sessions. After subjecting these observations to factor analysis, five distinct factors were identified and related to the behavior of the subject groups. Possibilities for further investigation include the profile of the successful group and identification of leadership style effects. It is suggested that identifying the components of each factor will aid the understanding of conditions that lead to its variation in a specific profile.
