American Psychological Association Symposium Papers. Occasional Paper #24.
Turnure, James E.; And Others
Presented are seven child research and development papers delivered at the 1973 American Psychological Association Symposium in Montreal. Described are the beneficial results produced by relevant goal oriented researchers who become directly involved with societal problems. Advocated is the need for psychology to become more historical, empirical, and pragmatic within an ethological framework. Research and development centers such as the one at the University of Minnesota are set forth as alternative arrangement to traditional departments. Discussed is the relationship between an early intervention project for retarded children and a university research and development center. The connection between theoretical and applied research is examined. Emphasized is the importance of adjusting research to fit practical problems in such real-life situations as the home and the classroom. (CL)
