Paraprofessionals--Changes in Minority Group Women After Four Years of College.
McVey, Ronald F.; Naun, Ruth A.
Sixteen minority group women, who attended college for four years in a career opportunity program, were measured by the California Psychological Inventory (CPI) before and after their college experience. Results indicated positive personality changes on all 18 CPI scales, with significant positive changes at the .05 level on five of these inventory scales. The present results indicate that after four years of college, minority group women, receiving individual and group counseling and special support services, seemed to have developed enhanced feelings of intrapersonal and interpersonal adequacy; a stronger sense of values and a greater acceptance of value differences; an increased motivation for intellectual efficiency; and increased sensitivity and responsiveness to others.
