Educational Opportunity Forum. Special Issue on Psychological Humanistic Education, Volume 1, Number 4.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Higher Education.
This edition provides an introduction to the psychological-humanistic education (PHE) movement. SUNY and the NY State Education Department have established a PHE program to develop new methods to achieve human potential, generate basic research, effect social change, and establish training programs and learning opportunities. The program is intended to serve as a resource center for local and state communities, particularly educational opportunity programs. Twelve articles cover: psychological education, courses in community and urban affairs, personal growth, the matching of individuals to organizations, "strength training" for new teachers, ways to promote a search for values, uncover destructive self-criticism, and nurture creative leadership, humanistic education, organizational development, sensitivity training, and growth communities. An extensive bibliography is included. The program's ultimate goal is to foster self-renewal. (NF)
