Abstract: There appears to be evidence that much potential IT support for group work is yet to be widely adopted or to achieve significant benefits. It has been suggested that, in order to achieve better results when applying IT to group work, designers should take more notice of modern philosophies that avoid the so-called "Cartesian Dualism" of mind separated from matter. It is clear that group work support is more than a matter of automating formal procedures. This paper reviews the question from the author’s lifetime of experience as a consultant, academic and group worker; proposes some models to address some of the missing perspectives in current approaches; and suggests how future efforts could be re-orientated to achieve better outcomes.
