Psychological Research and Sensitivity Training, a Collection of Annotated Abstracts for 1967.
Capling, R.G., Comp.
The Canadian Commission on Human Relations Training sponsored a conference in Toronto in April 1968 to focus on six major concerns of Canadian trainers--trainer development, communication, research, theory and design (of training), public acceptance, and participant satisfaction. In preparation for this conference, it was found that collected research on these six topics was limited to an annotated bibliography published by the Human Relations Center at Boston University containing 40 pieces of research done over the period 1960 to 1966. To augment this collection, this compilation and commentary of 90 items of 1967 research, gleaned from PSYCHOLOGICAL ABSTRACTS (subsections on developmental psychology, social psychology, physiological psychology, animal psychology, experimental psychology, personality, clinical psychology, educational psychology, and military and personnel psychology) was prepared. From these reports, it is concluded that the sensitivity trainer cannot fulfill his professional, ethical, and moral responsibility unless he makes himself familiar with such information. A National Journal on Human Relations Training should be set up to report fully on all relevant research. (aj)
