Human Relations Training in Three Rural Manitoba High Schools.
Banmen, John; Capelle, Ron
It is assumed that too few principals, teachers and counselors possess the necessary personal characteristics which facilitate the growth or self actualization of students. This study investigates whether these qualities could be developed, using a model of human relations training. Four hypotheses were formulated: (1) teacher self actualization, as measured by the Personal Orientation Inventory, will be higher after human relations training; (2) attitudes toward the educational process, as measured by the Educational Process Opinionnaire, will change; (3) human relations training will increase the value, to the participants, of inclusion and affection, and decrease the value of control; and (4) participants' post-training overt behavior will be more consistent with the behavior they desire from others. Hypotheses I and II were supported, i.e. there were significant changes in the direction predicted. Hypotheses III and IV received partial support. It is concluded that human relations training can be of value in assisting educational personnel development of personal characteristics which enhance their functioning. (TL)
