Person-Environment Transactions in Elementary Counseling and Noncounseling Settings.
Lucco, Robert J.; MacDougall, Mary A.
The purpose of the present study was to explore the nature of person-environment transactions in relation to the elementary school setting. The research employed the theoretical assumptions of Murray (1938) and the instrumentation of Stern (1970). Two principal questions were explored. Do the socio-psychological needs of students differ with respect to sex, race, or socio-economic status? Do educational environments differ with respect to school (counseling vs. non-counseling) and/or grade level? Discriminate analyses revealed that student needs did differ significantly with respect to sex, race and SES; and that school environments vary with regard to counseling and grade level. (Author)
