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.

Contraception by St. Paul-Ramsey Medical Center( Visual )

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

(Critical) This module, part of a series on human sexuality, is an overview of contraception, contrasting historical concepts with current views. Psychological responses and attitudes toward birth control are discussed, and charts and tables are incorporated effectively in presenting various contraceptive methods and associated statistics. The functions of sex for reproductive and pleasure preferences are compared. The program is highly recommended for use
The effects of experience on the job performance, job satisfaction, and stress of staff personnel by Earl H Potter( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Love and marriage by Emery Tang( Visual )

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

(Critical) This module, one in a series on human sexuality, is an attempt to define love psychologically. Rational love is compared with romatic love in terms of its nature, strength, and consistency. Eric Fromm's The Art of Love and Rollo May's Love and Will are focal points for this discussion. This psychologic review is a good attempt at a rational and reasonable approach to a vague concept; however, little factual information is included in this lecture and therefore the presentation is more suitable for public information. The program is recommended with reservations 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.

Aging by Jamie Guth( Visual )

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

(Critical) This module, the final unit in a human sexuality series, discusses physiologic and psychologic changes in aging men and women. The myth that sexual life is over with the cessation of reproductive life is discounted. A panel discussion of older men and women might have been more effective than the lecture format. The program is very limited and contains minimal factual information. No suggestions or answers are provided to the questions raised by this production. A fourth of the program is spent considering the possibility of harm to children and young people viewing all or part of the series. The program is recommended for limited use only
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.

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

Decision makers are viewed as having repertories of decision strategies (procedures and decision rules). These differ in the degree to which they require systematic analysis of the decision task; the greater the analytic requirement the greater the probability of a correct decision but the cost in terms of time, effort, and money also is greater. Strategy selection results from balancing the expected benefits of a correct decision against the costs of using each possible strategy and selecting the one that promises the maximum net gain. The components of the model (repertories, costs, benefits, etc.) are all viewed as contingent upon the characteristics of the individual decision maker and upon the characteristics of the decision task itself. A taxonomy of strategies also is presented. (Author)
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
Principles of sex education( Visual )

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

(Critical) This module, the second in a series of lectures on Human Sexuality, covers the principles of sex education. Frequently cited objections to sex education in schools are critically examined, and ethical issues of teaching human sexuality are considered from this commentator's perspective. The program is well organized and appropriately paced, the audio and visual quality are quite acceptable. A set of guidelines for developing a program in human sexuality is provided, but the discussion is simplistic and generalized and does not provide references, teaching aids, or written summaries. Although potential problem areas are anticipated, no suggestions for defusing or coping with them are provided. This is a largely opinionated, preachy discourse which is recommended with reservations to stimulate discussion

Homosexuality : what science understands by Lee Thorn( 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, is a two part assessment of homosexuality. Stereotypes and concepts labelling homosexuality as a deviation or maladjustment are contrasted with the stance that it is simply an alternative life style and sexual adjustment. 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
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
