Sex ethics( Visual )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This program, part of a human sexuality series, discusses sexual ethics from the perspective of Judeo-Christian tradition. Current environments and concepts are compared with the atmosphere in which many ethical tenets were formed, and the dichotomy is illustrated with a diagram of a population scale. Not enough audiovisual aids are incorporated to relieve the tedium of the lecture format. This material is extremely limited and subjective; very little factual information is included. The content appears aimed more at informing the public than educating the health professional. The program is recommended for limited use
Personality, motivational systems, and behavior of high and low LPC persons by University of Washington( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper presents a new interpretation of the least preferred coworker (LPC) score which suggests that the score reflects a hierarchy of goals. High LPC persons have as their primary goal the establishment and maintenance of interpersonal relations and as a secondary goal the attainment of prominence and self-enhancement. The low LPC person is seen as having as his primary goal the achievement of tasks and material relations. The implications of this interpretation and the supporting data for the prediction of behavior, leadership training, and personality theory are discussed, as is the integration of the contingency model results with findings obtained in other leadership research programs.

Coping with academic stressors : a pilot study by Irwin G Sarason( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report describes the development of a Coping Skills Program designed to deal with academic stressors. Subjects displaying serious academic difficulties were assigned to a coping skills group or to a no treatment control group. This training program involved providing subjects with information concerning the nature of stress, and with skills to enable them to deal more effectively with the cognitive and physiology components of anxiety. Various modules involved relaxation training, attentional training and training in inhibiting self interfering responses. Subjects were also given practice in using these coping skills in mildly stressful situations. Coping skills subjects as compared to controls were found to display significant reductions in test anxiety and also reported increased ability to cope with stressful situations in general, test taking situations, and public speaking situations. The implications of these findings for the development of stress management programs are discussed

The Treatment of sexual dysfunction( Visual )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Critical) This program, part of a series on human sexuality, is a two part synopsis of various forms of treatment of male and female sexual dysfunction. Manifestations of dysfunction are identified and a brief analysis of etiology considers marital problems. Current literature is cited in support of behavioral approaches. The importance of attending to anxiety and tension is integral to treatment is emphasized. The program is recommended for use
Adolescence( Visual )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(Critical) This module, one of a series on human sexuality, is a two part overview of adolescent sexuality. Standards, behavior, sex roles, and psychological and physiological responses are considered. Contraception, abortion and reproductive versus pleasure aspects of sexual activity are included in the discussion. Several studies are presented clearly in tables, but these are minimal, and the lecture format detracts from the program. It is a good synopsis of adolescent issues and problems and is recommended for use
Leader complexity and leadership style by University of Washington( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The document is concerned with an esteem for one's least preferred co-worker (LPC) scale as positively correlated with an individual's cognitive complexity. This hypothesis was tested in a variety of ways. The LPC score was correlated with a measure of cognitive complexity. High LPC subjects also were rated in their complex cognitions in making judgments about task settings against low LPC subjects. And finally, high LPC subjects' complex cognitions in perceptions of actual behavior and of other co-workers were evaluated. This information was integrated into a theory of leadership effectiveness.

Abortion( Visual )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(Critical) This program, part of a human sexuality series, presents historical, legal, and emotional aspects surrounding the issue of abortion. The right to life stance is contrasted with the idea of individual choice for each woman. Thecommentator outlines both supportive and opposing arguments. Despite the intent to be objective, however, his bias is apparent. A well-organized presentation of statistical data is effective. Psychologic issues relating to abortion are not covered as thoroughly as the legal aspects. The program is recommended with reservations for use
A Contingency Model for the Selection of Decision Strategies by Daniel W McAllister( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A contingency model for the selection of decision strategies was described and tested. This model suggests that when decisions are more significant, the decision cannot be reversed, and the decision maker is responsible for his actions, then the decision strategy will be more analytic and result in a greater investment of time and effort than when the opposite conditions are true. Three studies tested and supported these assumptions. The results are discussed in terms of their implications for the further development of this particular model and for the field of decision making in general. (Author)
Resource Allocation: Value Functions and the Marginal Value Theorem by Jay J. J Christensen-Szalanski( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper details how to use value functions to determine which method of allocating limited resources among several activities will yield the maximum amount of obtained value to the decision maker. In addition, it introduces a model from the ecological literature for use when the value of investing in new units of an activity decreases as a function of the number of units already invested in.

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Charts and tables are incorporated in brief consideration of etiology and psychological definition; but this discussion needs expansion. Evelyn Hooker's work is referenced. The program is recommended for use
