Text, illustrations, and exercises are utilized in this set of three learning modules to instruct the general public in methods of exploring human psychology and personal interrelationships. The first module, "The Basic Idea behind Rational-Emotive Therapy" by Vincent Larkin, distinguishes between rational and irrational fears and discusses the fundamental principles of rational-emotive therapy. The second module, "Eliciting the Relaxation Response through Self-Hypnosis" by Richard L. Bunning, describes the common elements of all relaxation techniques; the proper positioning, timing, and frequency of self-hypnosis; and the five basic steps in self-hypnosis. This module also provides the text of a recorded cassette which is used while practicing the self-hypnosis techniques. The third module, "Relationship Perceptions" by Thomas Shostak, provides a series of exercises to be used by a group of three persons in order to discover the varying perceptions each individual has of interpersonal relations. Each of the modules describes techniques and procedures, provides reinforcement exercises, and concludes with a post-test and answer key. The modules are designed to be completed in a specified amount of time ranging from 20 to 30 minutes. (JP)
