Project Upper Cumberland. Report For Budget Period Ending June 30, 1968.
Project Upper Cumberland, Livingston, TN.
Elementary and secondary school educators (150) were involved in a sensitivity training program. A three week introductory period and intensive small group sensitivity experience was followed by bi-weekly meetings for a year and a final week-long session designed to synthesize the total program. The Personal Orientation Inventory was administered three times during the period. Results of testing indicated generally progressive movement toward the national norms for self-actualizing people. Results of the Time Competent scale and the Inner Directed scale indicated a movement to more active involvement in living in the present, and in the acceptance of an independent, inner directed or self-directed approach to problems. A review of other scales supports the results described above. There was general positive and statistically significant improvement shown in the last two testings. Educators appeared more self acceptant, more flexible in application of values and freer to be one's self and make decisions and commitments not previously possible. This project is funded under provisions of the Title III Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (Author/JS)
