Building a girl's personality, a social psychology of later girlhood by Ruth Shonle Cavan( Book )

10 editions published between 1932 and 2014 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is the purpose of this book to assemble social psychology information with reference to girls and to present it and the experiences of the writers in nontechnical language in the attempt to give both a point of view and the present status of information on girls. Such discussions seem particularly pertinent at this time. Religious education in the church and character education in the public schools are no longer satisfied, in the one case, with doctrines and creeds and, in the other, with superficial character traits. The molding of personality and character must go deeper than word-of-mouth repetitions of creeds or virtues. To be a secure possession of the adolescent or youth, goodness must be more than unthinking adherence to rules of conduct taught in the classroom. The material in this book is presented in practical and concrete form rather than as abstract theories. The book is not primarily intended as curriculum material which can be used in teaching classes of girls. It is intended as background material for ministers, religious educators, teachers, and those in charge of dubs or connected with girls' organizations who may feel the need for a brief summary of the social psychology of later adolescence. The book is arranged with questions and references at the end of each chapter. Excerpts from case studies and from narratives written by young people are included as illustrative material"--Preface.
