Contraception ( 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
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
Age Related Changes in Cognition during the Working Years by Earl B Hunt ( Book )
1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In order to alleviate present and anticipated personnel shortages, the Armed Services will have to move away from the present reliance on young adults as a source of personnel. The impact will be heaviest on the technologically oriented services, such as the Navy. Previous analyses have indicated that adults in the normal working years (20-60) can meet the physical requirements of most service occupations. Questions remain about the effects of age changes in cognition on work performance of older personnel. Changes in cognitive capacities over the adult working years are reviewed here. Two major decrements are noted; a general deterioration of sensory functioning and a slowing of higher cognitive processes. The latter slowing may be sufficient to affect performance in situations in which time demands on responding are on the order of fractions of seconds, but would probably not affect most work situations. The general effects of experience, combined with an increase in verbal intelligence throughout the working years, argues for increased competence of older individuals in many work situations. There are indications that spatial reasoning abilities and the ability to develop solutions to new problems ('fluid intelligence') decrease with age. Secondary and review articles may overstate this effect. The primary studies themselves have serious design flaws
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
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
A final report on the application of operant procedures to litter-control in an urban park setting by Robert J Kohlenberg ( Book )

The Life Experiences Survey: Preliminary Findings by Irwin G Sarason ( )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This report describes the development of a measure of life changes, the Life Experiences Survey; and preliminary data related to this assessment instrument are presented. The RES is a 57 item scale that lists numerous events which individuals may experience and call for social readjustment. Subjects are asked to indicate events which they have experienced during the previous year and whether these events were perceived as positive or negative. Additionally, subjects are asked to rate on a 7-point scale the degree of impact these events have on their lives. From these responses it is possible to derive three life change scores: positive, negative, and total. This scale may be contrasted with earlier measures of life stress which failed to distinguish between positive and negative change and did not allow for individualized ratings of desirability of events and degrees of impact
Human sexuality : introduction history ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
(Critical) This module, the first in a human sexuality series, attempts to present an introduction to and history of human sexuality. The content is limited to citing material from 19th and early 20th century "health books" and comparing the misconceptions of that time with current ideas. Excessive emphasis on anecdotal and personal preference material at the cost of objective information impairs the educational value. The straight lecture approach, unrelieved by any audiovisual aids, is somewhat tedious. This is not a comprehensive overview of human sexuality concepts, attitude or practice. The presentation is aimed more towards informing the public than educating the health professional. It is recommended for limited use only
Marriage ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
(Critical) This module, part of a human sexuality series, is a discussion of marriage from historical and cross-cultural perspectives. The functions of the institution in fulfilling various human needs are explained. Reproduction and the nuclear family are considered. Divorce rate statistics are presented; however, overall little factual information is included. In general this is a successful attempt at structured consideration of a divergent and complicated topic. It is recommended for use

Human sexuality ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A telecourse lecture on contraception, contrasting historical concepts with current views
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
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)

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.
