Abstract:

This manual contains instructional material which enables Army leaders to acquire the basic concepts and principles of individual and group problem-solving. The acquisition of these concepts and principles as behavioral skills is the training goal. Thus, a workshop format primarily role-playing is utilized to provide students with a means of practicing behavioral skills and obtaining corrective feedback. The general procedures followed in the development of the manual consisted of adopting concepts and principles empirically derived by other researchers in the settings to the military setting and evaluating them by means of repeated student try-out. A companion manual, Instructor Manual -- Individual and Group Problem-Solving Workshop, contains the role-playing exercises and experimental training methodology.
