On Coping and Change. The Catherine Molony Memorial Lecture (City College, New York, New York, April 26, 1980).
Murphy, Lois Barclay
This is a talk by child psychologist and therapist Lois Barclay Murphy, given at City College, New York, in 1980. The address reviews Ms. Murphy's contributions to child psychology and her study of children's coping strategies. The speech briefly outlines other developments in psychological and sociological study since the 1930s, including the use of intelligence testing to determine children's abilities and the discovery that IQ is not a static phenomenon. Also recounted are Ms. Murphy's experiences as a planner and trainer in Project Head Start. Stressed throughout the talk is the author's opinion that individuals of all ages can grow in intellect and self concept if given stimulation, charged with responsibility, and treated with patience and sympathy.
