A Two-Week Practicum in Applied Psychology.
Smith, Ronald G.; And Others
Eleven upper division psychology majors and two junior college personnel were enrolled at Fort Hays Kansas State College in a two-week, full participation practicum held at Larned State Hospital. A major feature of the program was the early opportunity for intensive sampling of occupational role behaviors and reinforcers in an institutional environment. Students were free to explore typical role behaviors of the institution psychologists, their relations with other professional and para-professional workers, the treatment programs of the hospital, and its organizational structure. One goal was to induce changes in behavior relevant to the student's perception of state hospitals, both as social institutions and as occupational settings. The program is evaluated: (1) in relation to two programs of a similar nature; and (2) in terms of the behavioral indicators that its goals, at least for some participants, were achieved. (Author)
