This case study applied theories of group and team development to a group of interns from the Infant- Toddler Program of the Child Development Laboratory in the Department of Human and Family Resources at Northern Illinois University. The study used triangulation of qualitative methods through the group leader's written account of team development, the group member's written documentation, and videotaped planning meetings with the group. The author described the leader's interaction with the group, the interactions of the group members, and how these interaction patterns affected the task of the group. The data demonstrated several factors which interfered in the process of team development. The implications of this research on the professional and educational fields of child development and the effect of the project on the program were explored.
