"This monograph on Methods for the Study of Personality in Young Children presents the fruits of four years' exploration and experimentation by a group at Sarah Lawrence College who have been concerned with this problem of studying the personality make-up and development of young children. The various methods described range from the careful, but non-schematic, observations of the child within the nursery school setting, to the very systematic and carefully administered series of experimental situations specifically designed to provoke whatever affective or emotional reactions the child may be carrying, often rather effectively repressed or inhibited. This monograph therefore merits the interest and attention of students of child development and especially those concerned with the study of personality development; it also offers many fruitful leads to those who are concerned with programs in education and early childhood and the larger task of promoting mental health. In so far as the clinical study of adult personality disorders and of the very frequent psychosomatic illnesses points back inevitably to the childhood experiences of the patient when his characteristic patterns of acting and feeling were established, it seems probable that these methods will increasingly throw light on the early beginnings of personality and psychosomatic disorders and by so much will advance our knowledge of these processes and give clues to possible methods of prevention"--Preface.

Soon by Lois Barclay Murphy( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An almost deserted town in the middle of nowhere, Nebulah's days of mining and farming prosperity - if they ever truly existed - are long gone. These days even the name on the road sign into town has been removed. Yet for Pete, an ex-policeman, Milly, Li and a small band of others, it's the only place they have ever felt at home. One winter solstice, a strange residual and mysterious mist arrives, that makes even birds disappear. It is a real and potent force, yet also strangely emblematic of the complacency and unease that afflicts so many of our small towns, and the country that Murphy knows so well. Partly inspired by the true story of Wittenoom, the ill-fated West Australia asbestos town, Soon is the story of the death of a haunted town, and the plight of the people who either won't, or simply can't, abandon all they have ever had. With finely wrought characters and brilliant plotting, it is a taut and original novel, where the people we come to know, and those who are drawn to the town's intrigue, must ultimately fight for survival." -- Provided by publisher
