Integrative Experiences of College Students. Second Annual Progress Report of NIMH Project Grant MH 15045 1968-1969.
Bloom, Ellen; And Others
Following a pilot study between 1965 and 1967, the Counseling Center at Kansas State University initiated a 3-year mental health project to identify integrative experiences --those that lead toward more creative and fully functioning individuals-- of college students, and to communicate interpretative reports on the data collected to the academic community, parents, and the counseling profession. Staff members of the Center met weekly with groups of students to discuss the significance of the week's experiences, and material derived from each meeting was summarized, recorded, coded, and crossfiled by group, individual, and topics of discussion. By the end of 1968, 192 students had participated in the weekly sessions and the project had expanded to include individual interviews, psychometric assessments, and a study of the physiological aspects of human development. The first half of this report relates the project to other phases of student personnel work and reviews the pilot study phase, with emphasis upon emerging trends in data collected up to 1969. The second half focuses on contacts with faculty, students, parents, and the community at large, and discusses the project's contributions to the training of student personnel workers in higher education.
