A comment on my another post ("that I continue to learn and grow", does this expression sound natural?) mentioned a term encounter group
I have a bit difficulties when learning that term.
Proponents of the encounter group form of psychotherapy tend to believe that the behavior of an individual is shaped to a very large degree by responsive adaptation to the attitudes of other individuals, and that encounter groups enable individuals to discover and modify behavior that is perceived as inappropriate.
I am aware that the subject of the sentence above is "Proponents", and "the encounter group form of psychotherapy" modifies the subject.
I also understand the meaning of "Proponents of the encounter group", a group of people that advocate "encounter group".
I cannot understand the structure of the phrase "Proponents of the encounter group form of psychotherapy", in particular, does "form of psychotherapy" modifies "encounter group"?
