Communication Anxiety, Self-Image, and Locus of Control.
McGary, Lois J.; Parks, Arlie Muller
A study was conducted (1) to determine the effectiveness of a specially designed one-semester basic speech course on the self-image of college students experiencing extreme communication anxiety, and (2) to discover whether a difference existed between the self-image of students who had an external locus of control and those with an internal locus of control. Subjects, 31 students enrolled in the course, completed measures of locus of control and self-image both at the beginning and at the conclusion of the course. Results showed that the course did help students improve their self-image. (FL)
