Summary/Abstract: In our study we deal with the process of group evolution and structuring, which are one of the key elements of group dynamics. We are presenting the main theories regarding group development. We demonstrate our hypothesis that a training group undergoes the same specific development as other groups do through examples taken from the life of a psychodrama training group. Knowing this process is important since it gives a better understanding of different group events. In the history of groups, the development of the group as a whole and the development of the individual as part of the group go on simultaneously. We are able to deduct at which stage of group development is the team - formation, problem period (riots), consolidation, actual operation, ending - from the way the participants talk about their attitude towards the group and from the way they define their problems. In this study, we examine the process of group development through the attitudes of the members towards the group. We have included in tables some of the subjects discussed in the group and we have pointed out the latent content of these manifestations, and also, what these manifestations tell about the internal needs of the participants.
