Relationships Between Selected Family Variables and Maternal and Infant Behavior in a Disadvantaged Population. A Supplementary Report.
Gordon, Ira J.; And Others
This pamphlet contains a series of studies that grew out of the parent education project of the Institute for Development of Human Resources. The objectives and general design of the project consisted of instruction of 200 environmentally disadvantaged mothers by parent educators using a sequence of infant stimulation exercises conducted in the home. The individual studies presented represent a mix of graduate student pilot efforts, dissertation research, faculty investigations, and replications of pilot work. All have been edited and adapted to highlight the relationship between home factors, mother's attitude and behavior in the project, and her behavior toward children. Titles include: Relationship Between Maternal Behavior and Infant Performance in Environmentally Disadvantaged Homes; A Survey of Low Income Negroes in Alachuo and Surrounding Counties; Measurement of Self Esteem; A Study of the Relationships Between Trained and Untrained Twelve Month Old Environmentally Deprived Infants on the "Griffiths Mental Development Scale"; Relationship Between Maternal Behavior and Infant Performance in Environmentally Disadvantaged Homes; and Relationships Between Observed Home Behavior Variables and Infant Performance.
