New Perspectives on Personality Development in College Students.
Brawer, Florence B.
A new method of assessing college students that yields a full, multidimensional profile of the student's total personality is presented in the 12 chapters of this book. Chapter 1 provides theoretical formulations based on empirical data. In Chapter 2, three concepts that are basic to the central construct are described. The central construct is discussed in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 provides the six major components of this concept. In Chapter 5, the paradigm of the study through which many of the ideas described in the first four chapters were tested is presented, and the sample institutions that were used for this study of community college freshmen are discussed. In Chapters 6 through 11, theoretical structures, related research, and data gathered on incoming freshmen are presented. Chapter 12 is a synthesis of the findings; it presents ways in which the theories and results may be used as a basis for planning curriculums and instituting changes in higher education. A list of items included in the several independent variables is provided in an appendix. A bibliography and an index are included. (Author/DB)
