A University Freshman Preventive Intervention Program: Report of a Pilot Project.
Bloom, Bernard L.
The Freshmen Preventive Intervention Program had as its objectives for students the development of greater emotional maturity, more successful adaptation to the college community, less psychological disability, and fewer dropouts in the freshman class. By means of an interactive process using special questionnaires, the participating students were provided with membership in a group which had psychological reality, were given some reference facts with which to compare themselves, were provided an avenue for expressing their reactions to the university, were given some intellectual tools by which they might better understand the stresses acting upon them and their reactions to these stresses, were provided formalized opportunities to think through their own beliefs, and were provided an additional resource person to talk to in the event of some crisis. Evaluation of the pilot project was generally favorable. Suggestions are given for an improved program. (Author/HS)
