Supervised Study: Personal Development for Mature Female Students.
Anderson, Donald
There has been rapid growth in the number of mature female students entering institutions of higher education. Increases in employment opportunities, decline in birth rate, and the impact of social reform and the feminist ideology all indicate a trend toward greater opportunities for women with increased female participation in higher education. As a student development specialist, the counselor must recognize the particular psychosocial needs of women and develop strategies to facilitate the personal growth and development of the female student. A broad base of research and discussions on the psychology and psychosocial needs of women has rapidly developed. Drawing on the research in this field, the counseling service at Virginia Western Community College has planned a course designed to define specific sources of psychological, sociological, and situational factors which may impede the growth and development of the mature female student. Student objectives, proposed teaching methods, and a sequence of topics for the course are detailed. Desirable group dynamics and the means for course evaluation are also described. A bibliography focusing on college women is included. (Author/AH)
