Collaboration: Experiences in Changing the Behavior of Female Behavior Changers.
Hemmer, Joan D.; And Others
In response to the inflexibility and inadequacy of counseling psychology, research methodology, and the psychology of women, the panel pursued four objectives: (1) to investigate psychological and political transformations of women in the change process; (2) to view women's outlooks which lead to under-utilization of talent; (3) to challenge parametric research tools for social issues, and (4) to present an evaluation methodology. Norma Gluckstern and Joan Hemmer encourage students to challenge social policies which limit opportunities, as well as achievement, for women. Barbara Turner notes that perceptions of discrimination vary widely among college women and relate to demographic and developmental variables. Joan Bean reveals that sexism and bias exists in parametric research and in the psychology of women. Margaret Mehta evaluates Project Self, a key component in the re-entry process into higher education for women. Two discussants, Pat Sackrey and Margaret Hellie Huyck, respond to these issues.
