Growing Up: The Development of Psychosocial Maturity. Report No. 180.
Greenberger, Ellen; And Others
The Center for Social Organization of Schools has two objectives: to develop a scientific knowledge of how schools affect their students, and to use this knowledge to develop better school practices and organization. One of the three programs sponsored by the center is the Schools and Maturity Program. It is studying the effects of school, family, and peer group experiences on the development of attitudes consistent with psychosocial maturity. The objectives of the program are to formulate, assess, and research important educational goals other than traditional academic achievement. This report contains three papers on psychosocial maturity entitled: (1) Psychosocial Maturity and the Social Environment, (2) Attitudes Toward Self and Society, and (3) the Phenomenological World of the Mature Adolescent. A bibliography of the Schools and Maturity program is also provided. (Author/PC)
