MARTIN, R and DAVIDS, K (1995). The effects of group development techniques on a professional athletic team. Journal of Social Psychology, 135 (4), 533-535.Full text not available from this repository.
A team of 22 British professional soccer players attended a 5-day group development training course (DTC), conducted by the British Army, which included athletic and nonathletic activities. Data concerning self-reported indices of group cohesion and mental well-being were obtained approximately 2 mo before the DTC, and immediately before and after the DTC. As a result of the DTC, group cohesion improved, individual self-esteem improved significantly, and general stress was reduced significantly.
