Ten social trends thought to have relevance for the development of voluntarism are summarized in the second chapter; Chapter 3 analyzes the variety of needs and opportunities for volunteers, and reviews some new patterns and trends in the use of volunteers. Chapter 4 explores the bases of motivation of those who volunteer, and challenges professionals to extend their use of and trust in volunteers. Chapter 5 summarizes and analyzes the problems and practices of recruitment and orientation of volunteers. Goals, methods, and designs for training volunteers are explored in Chapter 6, and the need for training of trainers is discussed in Chapter 7. a "case study of the future" is described in Chapter 8. In a concluding epilogue, the authors attempt to help the reader make a bridge between this volume and his own situation. It is followed by a comprehensive, classified, annotated bibliography of significant literature about voluntarism. (Author/JLB)

Studies in topological and vector psychology by Kurt Lewin( )

17 editions published between 1940 and 2005 in English and German and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a beginning study in topological psychology, enabling the student of psychology to make a fresh start in the understanding and utlization of Dr. Kurt Lewin's methods. Certain it is that all psychologists are interested in Dr. Lewin's major attempt to employ new methods of formulating and mathematizing in psychology in such a way as to retain the basic and primary demands of psychology itself. His dynamic theories lead to certain derivatives whose experimental confirmation rightly is held to be of special significance. In these earlier studies the constructs have been kept semimathematical, as against nonmathematical (which would be confusing) or a display of mathematical technicalities that become devoid of psychological meaning. The work moves forward with two feet upon the ground: one theoretical or conceptual, the other experimental. The why and the what are brought into mutual relationship; they are made to serve each other. The validity of this process rests upon its demonstrated fruitfulness. That Lewin and his colleagues are willing to attack the hard problems that lie at the heart of social psychology (although out on the periphery of psychology as revealed to most pre-Gestalt workers), is in itself encouraging"--Preface.

Mobilizing the campus for retention : an innovative quality of life model by Laurence N Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major challenge confronting higher education today, how to maintain and enhance quality in a time of increasingly scarce resources, is examined. Discussed are the characteristics of the successful change process, the need for open communication, motivation of volunteers, key start up activities, and the importance of follow-through. Chapters include: mobilizing for campus retention: the context; a campus health check: 11 vital signs; key principles for mobilizing campus action; creating energy and direction through futuring; a systematic process model for campus retention; implementation issues and obstacles; and vital signs and indicators of retention. It is suggested that to assure optimum effectiveness, organizational development should follow two principles: (1) the planned change should encompass activities that cut across various segments of the institution, and (2) organizational development activities must marshal the collective resources and energy of the faculty, administration and staff of the institution. A bibliography and index are provided. (Lc)
