This study was undertaken to compare the views of leaders, former members of discussion groups and the agency's view of what is involved in discussion groups carried on by the Family Life Education Department of the Greater Boston Family Service Association. It is felt that by gaining additional insight into how the practitioner, in the case of the leaders, and the consumer, in the case of the former members, see the discussion groups, it is hoped that some of these views obtained may eventually be applied in improving future groups. It is also felt that if the agency's stated purpose of the discussion groups is considered in the comparison of the leaders' views and the former members' views of the groups, this will serve to suggest ways of improving the future groups. Another purpose of this study is that it is believed that it will yield indications as to the value of discussion groups of this type.
