Encounter Groups

Popularized in the '60s and again in the 90's, encounter groups are gatherings of people (often between 12 to 20) who go through a process of opening up and sharing some emotional side or experience with the other members of the group. By opening up and sharing such emotionally charged experiences, it is hoped that the members will get more in touch with their own feelings, receive support from the other members of the group, and become more socially aware of the feelings of others.
