Actually there is lots of work done in small-group dynamics. There have been intentional commuinities around for 30 years or more which have served as labrotories for exactly this kind of learning. The problem has largely been that these learnings are not widely known or investigated before cohousing groups embark upon their journey. There is a whole field of psycology and training in small group dynamics with lots of published research and papers. Again, this remains ignored by most of the cohousing movement. There is an upcoming publication called A Cohousing Resource Guide which offers a beginning of an attempt to catalog some of these things. As more is learned and shared this effort will grow into a definitive source book for these learnings. ---------- From: <netmail!writings [at] MIT.EDU> To: Rob Sandelin Subject: Re: Co-housing in Austin Date: Tuesday, February 22, 1994 10:23AM Angela, All of us are interested in how groups form. It's a pain in the neck because so few people know enough about small-group dynamics to spot people and communication problems when groups are forming. Survivor of a failed group, -Von Carts-Powell
